Supetar Brac

On a little promontory which closes Vlacica bay from the north there's a local cemetery which contains several tombstones made by the sulptor Ivan Rendic (1842-1939) who was born in Supetar. Rendic also began work on the nearby Petrinovic family mausoleum but was, in effect, fired by the Petrinovic family who tried to hire Ivan Mestrovic. When the great sculptor declined, the commission was given to Toma Rosandic who created the evocative white stone monument with Byzantine-Oriental features.

A very oriental style John.
That is certainly a very fine construction, as is the older one on the left which is beginning to show its age I suspect.
