Cain and Abel LORENZO GHIBERTI (1425-1452)

See http://www.wga.hu/art/g/ghiberti/paradiso/3kilabel.jpg for the source of the above photograph of the painting.

Cain and Abel is one panel of several Old Testament scenes in a door to the Florence Baptistry, called Gates of Paradise .  Ghiberti uses a technique called relievo schiacciato, which is akin to sculpture on a relatively flat surface.  For information on Ghiberti and these gates, see http://www.bluffton.edu/~sullivanm/italy/florence/ghibertiparadise/ghibertiparadise.html
