Mary Magdalen

circa 1430 - 1450

Why is it canonical?

Much in the same way that terra cotta relief sculpture rose in popularity because of its lower cost relative to the dominant materials, famous sculptors of the time also work in materials other than marble and stone. This sculpture, carved in wood and gilded, shows both Donatello's versatility and the possibilities of sculptural work using less expensive materials.
