Benvenuto Cellini (November 3, 1500 – February 13, 1571) was an Italian goldsmith, painter, sculptor, soldier and musician of the Renaissance.
Cellini, while employed at the papal mint at Rome during the papacy of Clement VII and later of Paul III, executed the dies of several coins and medals, some of which still survive at this now defunct mint.

 Benvenuto Cellini
BENVENUTO CELLINI was one of the enigmatic, larger-than-life figures of the Italian Renaissance: a celebrated sculptor, goldsmith, author and soldier, but also a hooligan and even avenging killer.
The son of a musician and builder of musical instruments, Cellini's first major brush with the law came as an early teenager: He was banished from his native Florence for his alleged role in a brawl.
Among Cellini's surviving works dating to this early period in his career is a gold medallion with carved stone inset, "Leda and the Swan," created for Gonfaloniere Gabbrello Cesarino and now in the collection of the museum at Vienna.

As even in death her gaze can petrify, some admonition to the citizens of Florence may well have been in Cosimo's mind when thinking of the subject...
"The duke approved Cellini's model for the statue, although any grim or gory elements implied by the choice of story seem early to have disappeared from the concept, and the final statue is delicate, graceful and elegant.
