A painted tile from Lombardy.
It was part of a coffered ceiling, typical of the Italian Renaissance mansions of the time.
The tile was part of a cycle of painted panels depicting the Zodiac. This panel represents in particular the sign of the Pisces.
As the last sign of the Zodiac, Pisces are commonly regarded as the most ingenious of the signs. They have, of all things, the task of creating a whimsical disorder, from which a new terrestrial cycle of superior quality can begin.
The panel is in good overall condition, considering its age. It has a few retouches. It is advisable to carry out anti-woodworm treatment.
Dimensions: 42 x 21 cm
