Relief Panel on Gundulić Statue in Dubrovnik, Croatia

Ivan Gundulić was a Croatian politician and poet who lived from 1589 through 1638. He is credited with standardizing the Croatian language. In a square bearing his name is an 1893 monument with his statue and four bronze reliefs. The panels depict scenes from Osman, his greatest literary work. This one shows Sunčanica being abducted by Ottoman sultan Osman II. This square is probably most famous for a flock of pigeons that descend on it every noon to be feed corn by the city. It is also the venue for a regular outdoor market.
