Title:Christ comforting a poor man
Notes:From the studio of Robbia, Luca della, 1484-1519

"with righteousness he shall judge the poor, and decide with equity for the meek of the earth" [ Isaiah 11:4] - "may he defend the cause of the poor of the people, give deliverance to the needy, and crush the oppressor." [Psalm 72:4] This terracotta rondel, covered with waterproof glaze, became a popular medium in Florence, Italy, for architectural decoration during the Renaissance. The glaze provided reflection of light and the ability to retain color over a long period.
