- Marble shepherd, gave its name to the Villa del Pastore at Stabiae (Stabiano, Italy, near Pompeii), where it was found in the garden, an aged shepherd carrying a young goat on his shoulders and a rabbit, that appears dead, in his right hand. This typical Roman bucolic subject of Hermes the ram-carrier was adapted by early Christian artists to portray Christ the Good Shepherd. ~ 75 AD.

Savior, Deliverer, and RedeemerYevgeny or Eugene Pluchart (1809-1880), a lesser known contributor to the artistic decoration of St. Isaac's Cathedral, received his education, according to some sources, at the Munich Academy of Arts in 1831-32 and according to some others, in his homeland, France. E. Pluchart came to St. Petersburg in 1836 and soon won fame as a fashionable portraitist. In 1839 he was made Academician for his portrait of Karol Lipinsky. In the 1840s and 1850s the artist continued to work on commissioned portraits. Worthy of special note among them are series of portraits featuring the daughters of grand Duke Mikhail Pavlovich, 10 portraits of Anatoly Demidov, portraits of Kiselevskaya, Auguste de Montferrand, and others. Montferrand's patronage enabled him to receive a commission for painting seven subjects for St. Isaac's Cathedral: The Miracle of the Loaves, The Sacrifice of Abraham, God Appearing to Moses in the Burning Bush, Moses in the Nile, and others. (Information from Natalia Negodova - the Head of the International Dept., State Memorial Museum, "St. Isaac's Cathedral.")
