In an unusual composition, Bronzino has painted St. John the Baptist as a handsome young man. It seems very far removed from the usual pictures of John as a wooly and dirty hermit living off of grasshoppers. The only "symbol" by which this figure can be identified is the pointed hand, the tradition sign of St. John the Baptists, who pointed out Jesus as the lamb of God.
