The Chapel of the Wounded Christ

I picked up this motive for it's very strong symbolic note! It's The Chapel of the Wounded Christ that's situated in the street Ilica 1, next to the main Zagreb square. It is a part of a building constructed in 1934., and it replaced the old baroque chapel that used to be here as a part of a hospital complex. The hospital and the old chapel are gone but in the new chapel you can still see a baroque wooden sculpture of a wounded Christ.

Two days of protests continued yesterday as well and will continue on Monday. Because of the sad and tragic events these day in Zagreb, I cannot oversee the symbolism between the wounded Christ and wounded Zagreb - we must pray!
