Part of the monument

APRIL

Museum showcase of the month is in April dedicated to a part of the monument of King Peter I. Karađorđević, which once stood in front of Ljubljana Town Hall.

The first equestrian monument in Ljubljana was the work of Slovenian sculptor Lojze Dolinar. The statue was unveiled on 6 September 1931 and stood in front of the Ljubljana Town Hall for almost 10 years. After the occupation of Yugoslavia, the Italian occupiers removed and destroyed the statue in the night from 25 to 26 July 1941. The head is most probably the only recognizable part of the monument that has survived to these days. It is a part of our collection since the founding of the museum.
