This figure of Fortuna bears stylistic similarity with a work created by Giovanni Bologna in the 1560s, such as his Mercury composition of ca. 1563–34, or the sketch model for the group of Florence Triumphant Over Pisa of 1565. Its heavy, rough cast suggests it is a model preserved in bronze, not dissimilar from the appearance of Giovanni Bologna's first design for the Mercury, cast in 1564, now in the Museo Civico, Bologna.
