Abstract

Furnishings of the church, thus 3 altars and sculptures, including the sculpture of David in question, were created in 1766 on the initiative of the then parish priest Andrzej Dominik Lipiewicz. David is a figure in the Old Testament. He was a King of Judah, a zither player and an author of Psalms. In iconography, he is portrayed in royal attire, very often with a harp as an attribute, as in the sculpture in question.
