The Summit Cross by Sëurasas (1932)

Gipfelkreuz von Seurasas (Ausschnitt)
The impressive, larger-than-life-size summit cross of Sëurasas is an early work by the local sculptor Vinzenz Peristi (1909-1943), who died in battle on the Eastern Front.

In order to protect it against destruction by the elements, in 1959, it was the first object to be installed in the new Valley Museum of Gröden/Gardena. A duplicate now stands in its place at the original site.
