Decorative shelf, High Altar (1748-1757)

It is not known exactly where this anthropomorphic shelf stood on the altar. The figurative elements are missing although the pendant itself has survived. Remaining details suggest work by Bottigliero or Pagano although it should be remembered that the young Giuseppe Sammartino was also working at the same studio as Pagano from 1756 meaning that some of the decoration may have been his. Sammartino was to go on to become an artist of note in the following decades.
