Aronne

Author: Gian Maria Morlaiter
Century: XVIII°
DATE: 1750 POSITION: second statue on the right (on map n° 6) MEASUREMENT: METHOD: sculpture MATERIAL: hard stone

The statue, like all the others of this series, is located in a niche, placed on a typical conoidal rococo platform, with two "modiglione" spirals (an ornamental pattern that is usually found in Corinthian capitals).

Aronne, realised between 1750 and 1751, is striking for its biblical adherence that is characterized even in his dress. Morlaiter shows him dressed in sacred vestments, the chest is adorned with the twelve gems symbolizing the twelve tribus of Israel, an efod on his head and a central gem is engraved with the name Jahvè.
