Hans Holbein the Younger , St John the Apostle, 
c. 1517, Kunstmuseum Basel

Settignano's and Donatello's Saint John the Baptist was already covered in a golden fleece. The garden feels like it exists more in the hearts and souls of men rather than its reflection in nature but with the grace of heaven in your eyes and gods love in your heart, heaven on earth is also apparent. All earth is affected by Gods divine garden or love.

Matteo Civitali, Saint John the Baptist, 
c. 1480, Bode Museum, Berlin
