Funeral Monument to Maestro Gregorio Carafa

Funeral monument of Grand Master Gregorio Carafa. The bust of the deceased, in bronze, is flanked by two standing putti; two others, flying in the archway above, pull back the edges of a curtain to show the Dardanelles Strait where Turkish and Maltese galleys are fiercely fighting, a memorable clash that took place in 1656 in which Carafa was greatly honoured.
