Description of contents:
The Madonna’s sculpture in Gozlice remains in the Church of St. Mary Holly Virgin in Gozlice. That is a figure of Madonna who keeps her son- Jesus in an affectionate manner. Probably, it was inset in the tympanon, and discovered back in 1915 in the course of deleting the war collapses. Madonna has approximately 65 centimetres of height, her eyes are flooded with lead, on her head there is a diadem, and she is worn in a garment adorned with a delicate ornament. She is pathetic, noble and keeping her son in a pose of a queen (it is worth comparing her with another Madonna- in the church in Wysocice). The history experts find here some influence of the French, maybe it was an effect of the nearby Cysters’ monastery. The mentioned Cysters left Burgundy for the Sandomierz land in Poland. Nowadays, the sculpture is exposed in the Diocesan Museum in Sandomierz, it means- in the so- called Dlugosz’s House.
