Cross with a stone plinth (Mikulášovice)

Granite plinth with a high cast-iron cross, age unknown.

During the latest reconstruction work a cast-iron silhouette of the Virgin Mary was placed on the plinth of the cross with the crucified Christ by the main road in Mikulášovice. This used to be a common sight by many small sacral buildings in the Šluknov promontory. Due to the devastation that occurred following the war, very few of these silhouettes have been preserved. Outside the Šluknov region this is highly unusual, and the one in Mikulášovice was the first such example the restorers had ever seen.
