Original bases in faux marble lacquered wood Their twisting poses, the carvings, and horror vacui decorations are pure baroque but their iconography is extremely rare: a putto holding the "Veil of Veronica" was anything but common in this era. One of the few examples partially comparable to our sculptures is the bas-relief in the church of Santissimo Salvatore in Palermo, Sicily. This all suggests that these two angels might be unique models from the atelier of a great master sculptor.
