Summary[edit]

Description
Britain Loves Wikipedia at the Victoria and Albert Museum
Sarcophagus of St Justina
English: Sarcophagus of St Justina

About 1450-1476
Probably by Gregorio di Allegretto (active 1442-76)
Italy, Padua
Marble

To create this tomb, the sculptor re-carved an ancient Roman sarcophagus. The artist was probably Gregorio di Allegretto. He worked with Donatello, who is credited with inventing this style of shallow relief carving. The crown and halo may suggest that the figure is St Justina, one of the patron saints of Padua.
