Long Description:

Depicted Baroque column with statue of St. Sebastian (Sloup Sv. Šebestiána) can be found in village square of a small South-Moravian village Slup.

Early-Baroque statue of St. Sebastian from an unknown author from 1680 on a Corinthian column was restored after a lightning strike in 1913. The column is a compositional dominant and a significant small sacral architecture in the village square of Slup.

On the square base is a cubic plinth with a small segment-terminated niche on the front and preserved German inscriptions on the sides. On the pedestal is a square plintus, from which grows a cylindrical column with a smooth shaft and a richly decorated Corinthian-type head complemented by angel mascarons. At the top of the column stands the traditionally conceived statue of St. Sebastian in a loincloth, chained to a tree. The martyr is chained by his arms and legs in a dynamic composition, with his left hand raised above his head bowed to the right, his right leg bent at the knee and three metal arrows in his body.
