Serpent-slayer: Giovanni della Robbia's glazed terracotta sculpture St Michael the Archangel (c.1500-10) was sold at Sotheby's last week for $413,000 - more than four times its pre-auction estimate. The customary scales depicted in the saint's left hand are replaced here with a white orb surmounted by a metal cross, indicating his guardianship over all souls
