Caption
A man's head is attacked by beasts on the nave side of the marble ambo, made in the early 12th century (some sources say 1110, others 1143) and reconstructed after the roof collapsed in 1196. The golden statue above depicts St. Matthew the Evangelist and is thought to date from the 8th century. Sant'Ambrogio Basilica, Milan, Italy.
