Maria Działo


The 19th-century sculpture was created in an unknown sculpture workshop. It depicts St. Stanislaus, Bishop of Cracow, one of the main patrons of Poland. He was born around 1030 in Szczepanów. Due to a conflict with king Bolesław II the Generous, he was murdered by his order in 1079 during a Mass in the Church of St. Michael on Skałka (according to tradition). In the work in question, a half-length figure of Piotrowin is located in the bottom of the sculpture, which illustrates the legend according to which Stanislaus raised Piotrowin from the dead.
