The Prophet Haggai (c. 1285-97; sculpted from marble by Giovanni Pisano), Victoria and Albert Museum, London, 21 July 2013. From the wall text:

Giovanni Pisano designed a revolutionary façade for Siena Cathedral. It housed a series of monumental figures in arcades, of which this fragment was part. The sculptor allowed for the fact that the figure was to be placed high up on the church by carving it with great boldness.
