The exterior of the Orsanmichele church in Firenze, Italy. I was particularly fond of this guy, who I named "St-Peter-of-the-Tongs" (he can get an honest answer from anyone ...). Wikipedia is much more prosaic about this: his name is St. Eligius, and the sculpture was sponsored by the Farrier's guild (blacksmiths).
