Content and Structure

Scope and content

This sarcophagus appears to have been made for the church of Santa Giustina at Padua and is perhaps identical with a marble shrine commissioned in 1476 to contain the body of the saint. On the front of the sarcophagus the body of the saint is carved in relief, lying on a bier and covered with a cloth. At the ends are reliefs of angels swinging censers. By Agostion di Duccio, Italian 15th century.
