Abstract

The sculpture of St. Isidore the Laborer, along with the whole high altar, was created in the Cracovian sculpture workshop of Władysław Druciak in 1914. His works are described as an example of historicism in sacred sculpture of the early 20th century. Saint Isidore, a patron of farmers, died in 1130 but he was canonized only in 1622. In Druciak's sculpture, he was portrayed with a spade in his hand, which refers to one of the miracles – when the saint made it possible for a stream of water to spray from a stone, using the spade, and give a drink to the thirsty.
