Francesco Mochi (1580-1654) Basilica di San Pietro, Roma. Santa Veronica. Detail.

Francesco Mochi, Veronica, 1629-32, southwest pier of the crossing of Saint Peter's, Rome. "The year after he carved the Baptist, Mochi began work on the statue for which he would ultimately be most famous, or notorious, the Veronica in the Crossing of Saint Peter's. ... If she were to adopt the pose of any other figure from the crossing [by Mochi's rivals], she would tower over it. It is as though Veronica has bent over to reduce herself to the proper height." -Michael Cole
