Description

Southern side of the lower arcade of the west front at San Michele in Foro, Lucca. It is described by Ruskin as follows:

St. Michele of Lucca is wrought entirely in white marble and green serpentine; there is hardly any relieved sculpture except in the capitals of the shafts and cornices, and all the designs of wall ornament are inlaid with exquisite precision—white on dark ground: the ground being cut out and filled with serpentine, the figures left in solid marble.
