The sculptor of the present statuette had an intimate knowledge of Monnot's Saint Paul, in the position of this figure's limbs and the particular folds in the drapery. Furthermore, the author was familiar with the work of other important sculptor's in Rome, including that of Alessandro Algardi, whose specific facial types clearly informed the fine head and beard of the present figure.
