Restoration of famed "Gates of Paradise" complete after 33 years

Restoration is complete for Lorenzo Ghiberti's masterpiece, the bronze and gilt doors that he created for the Florence Baptistry in 1452. Michaelangelo called them the Gates of Paradise.

The door took 27 years to make and was removed in 1990 for restoration. The doors will now move to the Museum of the Duomo for permanent display. A replica of the doors hangs in the baptistry. [photos]
