15. Lattuga Tomb

by Luigi Legnani
This is a curious work: the sculptor, Luigi Legnani, should have depicted an allegory of industry, but the woman portrayed here casually holding the caduceus (the symbol of medicine) is more reminiscent of the figure of Vanity, meaning a disregard of earthly things, such as industry (represented by the cogwheel) and abundance (the cornucopia).
