Ciborium for holy oils

The work is inspired by the tabernacle of Desiderio Settignano in the Church of San Lorenzo in Florence. This ciborium was probably never used for the Eucharist, if anything for the Holy Oils.

It consists of a ciborium with curtain-bearing angels, between two candle-holding angels. In the lunette the Child Jesus in a sign of blessing among little angels who are praying. Shelf with cherub and cornucopias.
