Autumn Statue by Giovanni Caccini on Ponte Santa Trinita in Florence, Italy

In 1608, Cosimo II de’ Medici, the Grand Duke of Tuscany and the primary benefactor of Galileo, was getting married. To honor the occasion, four statues of the seasons were commissioned for the Ponte Santa Trinita bridge. Giovanni Caccini created two of them: Summer and this one representing Autumn.
