The mysterious and possibly dangerous heroine of the story, Sybille Fugger, appears to a dazzled Giorgione in vermilion red, “the colour of dragon’s blood,” on the quays of Venice in a pivotal moment of the novel. The colour became the inspiration for a number of pieces, including this hand-made model staircase with goddesses in three shades of red.
