This is one of the most innovative and dynamic portraits of the Renaissance. The Venetian collector Andrea Odoni (1488–1545) holds in one hand a statuette of Diana of Ephesus, symbol of nature, and with the other he claspes a cross to his chest, suggesting that Christianity takes precedence over nature and the pagan gods of antiquity.
