Capricorn (section of a zodiac frieze)

Italian, Milan

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 536

These signs of the Zodiac have been cut from a horizontal band of relief that once belonged to an object of considerable size and importance. Capricorn should follow Sagittarius but Renaissance artists occasionally arranged the signs in reverse order. The punched backgrounds are typically Venetian.
