...Main facade...Bas-reliefs of the 1st pier of the main facade with the stories of the Old Testament attributed to Lorenzo Maitani and his workshop, one of the most famous of all of the 14th century sculptures.
On account of the oustanding importance of these bas-reliefs in 14th century European art history, a brief description herewith follows, the beginnning with the 1st pier on the left with the stories of the Old Testament. From bottom moving upwards: Creation of the world and of man - God infuses life into Adam and takes a rib from him as he sleeps; Creation of Eve; Eden with God the Father forbidding or first ancestors to pick the fruit from the tree of good and evil; Original sin; Expulsion from paradise; Adam tilling the earth and Eve spinning ; Cain and Abel making offerings to God; Cain kilss Abel.
