15-21 pg 474 Willigelmo. CREATION AND FALL, WEST FAÇADE, MODENA CATHEDRAL. Emilia, Italy. Building begun 1099; sculpture c. 1099. H approx. 3'. Wiligelmo may have be inspired by Roman sarcophagi in carving this work. The figures are carved in high relief, giving them a strong sense of three-dimensionality. The framing gives the impression of a stage. The figures are lifelike and emotional and were once brightly painted. Wiligelmo had a strong influence throughout Italy and as far as England.
