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, and his friend Baptist Walpoth (1911-1934).

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.
