Saint Peter Sculpture

Catalogue note author
Maria Działo


The sculpture of Saint Paul, along with the entire high altar, was made by Wojciech Maciejowski in 1948 in Cracow. The artist died probably in the late forties of the 20th century so the high altar in Wola Batorska and its decoration are among his last works. The sculpture in question depicts Saint Paul who was presented in a traditional manner with the following items: two keys symbolizing a power of vicar of Christ and a model of Basilica of Saint Paul in Rome, referring to its apostle mission. On the other side of the altar there is a sculpture of Saint Paul made in the same workshop.
