Marching king Tomislav

Ok, I admit it, this photo has nothing to do with the current weather in Zagreb. It's been rain-snow-sun all the time for few days now. Still I wanted to show you this photo that I took recently because it is a sort of an antipode of one of my first photos I made for this blog. It is the King and the magnolia tree which I took during warm spring days. This sculpture of King Tomislav (he was the first Croatian king who lived in X. century) was made by a famous Croatian sculptor Robert Frangeš-Mihanović between 1928. and 1938. He also made a beautiful carving of Holy Trinity at the entrance to the Zagreb Cathedral.
