Phaedra Sarcophagus 2nd century Pisa
These 2nd and 3rd century Roman sarcophagi in the Camposanto, Pisa, were the inspiration for the beginning of the Italian Renaissance sculpture of the 13th century. In particular the Phaedra Sarcophagus, pictured above, was the model for Nicola Pisano's Madonna, and animal scenes on the pulpit in the cathedral.
