Photo of the Week: 13th-Century Pulpit by Niccolò di Bartolomeo da Foggia in the Duomo di Ravello

In the nave of the Duomo di Ravello is a 13th-century pulpit by the great Niccolò di Bartolomeo da Foggia. Commissioned by Nicola Rufolo, the pulpit is decorated with polychrome mosaics, inlays and an eagle serving as the lectern. The plat-form stands on six twisted columns, supported on the backs of six majestic lions. Photo by New York Scugnizzo
