Florence – Museo degli Innocenti (St. Mary Magdalen by Agnolo di Polo)

This terracotta figure dates from the first part of the sixteenth century and was inspired by a wooden statue produced by Donatello. It was created and painted by Agnolo di Polo, a local artist who was born in Florence in 1470 and died in 1528. Due to old damage, the hands of the figure are modern and were added in 2015, but are connected with magnets and can be easily removed if required.

This is the wooden statue, now in the Cathedral’s museum, produced by Donatello.
