  The Pulpit

So a big fire in 1595 destroyed of the original art work. But the beautiful pulpit survices the fire.

This master piece of art was made by Giovanni Pisano (1302 ? 1311). During the redecoration works in the Cathedral it was removes and replaced in 1926.

This pulpit has Corinth columns which are resting on Lions. The pulpit is decorated with magnificent panels which show scenes from the New Testament.
