Gates of Paradise The sculptor Lorenzo Ghiberti worked for 27 years to finish the East doors of the baptistery. They depict famous scenes from the Old Testament. Ghiberti employed the recently discovered principles of perspective to give depth to his compositions which today - 500 years later - are among the most heralded pieces of art in Florence.
