Long Description:
CZ: Barokní socha neznámého autora z doby kolem roku 1750 ohranicuje spolu s dalšími tremi sochami (Panna Maria, svatý Jan Nepomucký, svatý Prokop) symbolický ochranný kríž, jehož ramena se protínají v prostoru nekdejšího kláštera v Klášterní Skalici.

Svatá Anna byla údajnou matkou Panny Marie a tedy babickou Ježíše Krista. V kanonických evangeliích, které tvorí Nový zákon o ní zmínky nejsou. Je uvedena v apokryfním evangeliu svatého Jakuba. Jméno Anna se vykládá jako jako „milostná, laskavá“.

ENG: Baroque statue of an unknown artist around 1750, along with three other statues (the Virgin Mary, Saint John of Nepomuk, Saint Prokop) forms protective symbolic cross, whose arms are crossed in space in a former monastery monastic Skalice.

Saint Anna (also Anne, Ann, from Hebrew Hannah, meaning "favor" or "grace") of David's house and line, was the mother of the Virgin Mary and grandmother of Jesus Christ according to Christian and Islamic tradition. English Anne is derived from Greek rendering of her Hebrew name Hannah. Mary's mother is not named in the canonical gospels or the Qur'an.
