Abstracts
A stone relief (45-47/24-26/18 cm) with a fragmentary representation of two saints under a gently curving arch decorated with indentations was found in the course of restoration works at the church of Our Lady of Snow (18th century) at Belec in 1997. The fragment was found within the church’s drainage system. We recognize the remains of two figures with haloes in frontal position; the gently curving arch above their heads may indicate that they were originally a part of a larger composition, possibly a lunette. A preliminary analysis of the style of this rare example of figured sculpture in continental Croatia indicates that the work was done in the Romanesque period, possibly toward the end of the 12th or at the beginning of the 13th century. Within continental Croatian material the piece is rather unique due to its almost classical repose (in spite of the awkwardness of style), inspired, not unlikely, by a Roman provincial model. Analogies, in particular for the indentations (not so much for the style), can be found in Hungary (Székesféhervár, Somgyvár, Madocsa, Obuda; Arača in Vojvodina). The stone was probably cut out of a larger piece and reused as an ashlar in a wall (the 16th century bastion added to the castle of Belec?), and then, later, again in the drainage system of a Baroque church. The original site of the stone is not clear. A pending petrographic analysis may hopefully provide some clues.
