Sculpture of Saint John of Nepomuk

Sculpture of Saint John of Nepomuk

A statue of rural character is situated in the village near the house with the descriptive number 122. It is one of the first in the northern Moravia; it was built just before the canonisation of Saint John of Nepomuk in the basilica of S. Giovanni di Laterano on the 19th March 1729 by the pope Benedict XIII.

Saint John of Nepomuk

Baron Rudolf Christoph Freiherr von Witten (+1733) had the statue built on the occasion of being conferred the title of count by the Emperor Joseph I. in 1708, the sculptor was presumably David Zürn the younger (1665 po 1724).

The statue of the saint is dressed in a canonical gown holding a cross with the body of the crucified Christ.

There is a chronogram 1708 on the front of the pedestal:

S./Ioannes/NepoMVCene/InterCeDe/pro nobIs (Saint John of Nepomuk, intercede for us)

TIbI s.IoannI/honorIs DefensorI/serVatorI propagatorI/ InhonoratIonIs/eXtIrpI Ita sIne VLapIterVoVI/CoMes a WItten (Dear Saint John, honoured defender, saviour, propagator dishonoured (So it had Count Witten marked out)
