Plaster cast of Judith and Holofernes (1893; bronze original 1460 by Donatello), Victoria and Albert Museum, London, 21 July 2013. From the wall text:

The South Kensington Museum (now the V&A) acquired casts of famous Renaissance sculptures so they could be easily studied. This cast represents one of Donatello's most important bronzes. The original statue was commissioned by Cosimo de' Medici and stood in his palace garden. The spectacular centrepiece of a fountain, it symbolised the virtue of Florence overcoming tyranny.
