This deeply carved roundel with the demi-figure of the prophet Habacuc epitomises High Renaissance Venetian sculpture. It would originally have formed part of a series of the prophets, often numbering twelve to balance the apostles. For a series of the prophets see those in the Badoer-Giustianini Chapel in San Francesco della Vigna, Venice previously thought to be by Pietro Lombardo and now believed to be by an artist working within his circle. The roundel of Habacuc displays realistic portraiture; note the incised pupils and irises, a beard with finely drilled definition and the voluminous drapery with broad intricate swathed folds, many of the techniques favoured by Venetian sculptors of the late 15th century working within the ambit of the Lombardo brothers. Note in particular the relief of St. Mark in the Badoer-Giustianini Chapel recently re-attributed to Giambattista Bregno as discussed by Schulz (2003) and the roundel of St. Luke by Lorenzo Bregno in the Cappella de SS Sacramento in Treviso Cathedral, illustrated by Schulz (1991).
