Medallions with the Blessed Pious V

When the marble decorations for the pillars in the Dominican church were made (1694-1709), Pope Pious V (Antonio Ghislieri), a Dominican linked to the Battle of Lepanto, had not yet been canonized (he would be in 1712). As a “beatified” of the Church his effigy would have been placed on one of the corner pilasters of the nave. This can also be deduced from the rough surface of the rear of the figure. The face is in a state of ecstacy like the others in the same cycle but the features also denote a strong character.
