Marco D'Agrate - St. Bartholomew Flayed
Of all the sculptures one can find in the Milan Duomo, Marco D'Agrate's "St. Bartholomew Flayed" might be the most famous one. Made in 1562 for the Veneranda Fabbrica of the Duomo, the sculpture portrays the martyr carrying what looks like a drape on his shoulders and around his body. But it is his skin, in clear reference to the martyrdom he suffered.
