Across the country

On your route on the mountains or at the beginning of little villages in my country one can often see a »Znamenje«, a memorial mark, dedicated to Saints. They used to be set up from late middle age till first half of last century, first by aristocrats and ecclesiasts, later on by local communities and farmers. Mostly they were a vow for salvation from disasters or a reminiscence of them. Symbolically with it the place is consignated in God's hands.













The photo reference was provided by Matej for our monthly painting challenge.

Davvero bellissimo, con questi colori caldi e l'essenzialità dei tratti... è un soggetto che mi piacerebbe molto dipingere... prima o poi ne troverò uno che non mi costringa a sedere in mezzo alla strada per avere la visuale migliore ;)
