The pulpit’s puttos


Ackermann made only two of the putto corbels that support the pulpit’s twisted colonnettes. Additionally, he made the large putto head above the door portal. The puttos made by his assistant, who was less skilled than the master, turned out to have flat, broad foreheads and thick noses, while the feather covering of the wings of the puttos was more ungainly.
