Gates of Paradise

A few months ago I posted a photo of Rodin's Gates of Hell, so I thought I would keep the delicate balance with a picture of Ghiberti's Gates of Paradise.  Lorenzo Ghiberti condensed the Old Testament into ten panels to produce one of the defining masterpieces of the Italian Renaissance and it is available for your viewing pleasure at San Francisco's Grace Cathedral.  Sheer awesomeness.
