Catalogue note author
Maria Działo


The sculpture of Saint Hyacinth along with the entire side altar was made for the newly-built church of Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Krzeszów around the year 1903 in the sculpture workshop of Tyrolean sculptor Ferdinand Stuflesser. The funder of the work was a parish priest of the parish in Krzeszów, father Michał Bochenek. Stuflesser depicted Dominic, a patron and founder of the order of Dominican friar in a typical iconographic tradition: a habit and a Dominican coat with a dog by his side that is a symbol of the order (Domini canes - Dogs of the Lord, i.e. faithful servants).
