This panel was designed by Jacopo Vignola for the Renaissance historian Francesco Guicciardini (1483–1540). It includes his coat of arms and those of his well-born wife, Maria Salviati. It represents the collaboration between a celebrated designer and a famous craftsman, who specialized in the challenging art of wood inlay.
