One of my favorite sculptures, in the Duomo in Milano; this is St. Bartholomew whose artist escapes me at the moment. If you remember, St. Bartholomew was flayed and here he carries his skin around his shoulders. I love his resolute, unmartyr-like expression and his athletic stance. ha!

It was Marco D'Agrate done in 1562. Surprising to me was little is found on the net on this sculptor. It is an amazing work.

You know, I don't know if I knew that. I just love this piece, too. Outside of the Michelangelo Trifecta, Moses, Pieta and David, this is one of my very favorites.
