Close up of St. Saviour Church in Dubrovnik, Croatia

Dubrovnik suffered from an earthquake in 1520. The event was frightening but caused minimum damage. This prompted the Senate to commission Petar Andrijić to build the St. Saviour Church. The cherubs are unraveling a scroll with a Latin inscription giving thanks to Jesus Christ for sparing the town. Among the other ornate carvings over the portal is the winged angel in the pediment.
