'Fall of the Rebel Angels,' Early 18th century; Italy (Naples) ivory; The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City, MO, USA. In its complexity and astonishing display of technical skill, this ivory recalls the taste of the Mannerist period in the 16th century, but its lightness and virtuosity are also characteristic of the Rococo. At the top, the artist has represented the Holy Trinity, with God the Father, Christ the Redeemer and the Holy Spirit in the form of a dove.
