Sculptured façade details from the House of Lords of Lipá in Brno, Czech Republic. The House of the Lords of Lipá is a Renaissance palace (1589–96) with a 19th-century sgraffito façade. The figural groups are on either side of the building entrance. The house was built by the architect Antonio Gabri for merchant Christoph Schwanz of Retz between 1589–1596. Another Italian—Giorgio Gialdi—created the sculptural decoration.

Saturday Statues

Saints Who Weren’t Sinners

I love the vivid drapery on this unidentified statue set in the niche of a wall across from Saints Peter and Paul Cathedral, Brno, Czech Republic. It may be Saint Barbara, an early Christian saint and martyr who died in A.D. 306. Her symbols include a sword, tower, cup and wafer, crown, and/or palm. The statue holds a sword and cup, and a circular ring inside the cup could be a wafer.
