Habakkuk and the Angel is a marble work by Bernini, made between 1656 and 1661.
Work carried out as part of the works for the Capella Chigi, inside the basilica of Santa Maria del Popolo in the Campo Marzio district.
Commissioned by Cardinal Fabio Chigi who became pope and took the name of Alexander VII, the work completes a single narrative together with Daniel and the lion.
Placed in the right niche of the altar, the work has become famous in recent years thanks to Dan Brown’s novel Angels and Demons, and its film adaptation, for which it constitutes an important clue to the protagonist.
