The exhibition featured replicas of five restored panels from Ghiberti’s North Door of the Florence Baptistery in the Special Projects Space in the Museum Plaza, along with replicas of the five bronze statues, including Perseus with the Head of Medusa (1552), created by Benvenuto Cellini (Italian, 1500-71) for the Piazza della Signoria in Florence. The Gates of Paradise and North Door panel replicas demonstrate technical innovations in lost wax bronze casting and invite visitors to a comparison of artistic traditions and restoration technologies across cultures, both Florentine and Indian.
