Lovrenc Erzar, Holy Family at work, the house altar, the second half of the 19th century
Lovrenc Erzar (1835-1903) was a miller from Nasovče near Komenda. He cut out completely distinctive images of saints, angels, and others in zig-zag style. His works are also characterized by richly decorated pillars on small house altars, which remind us of Baroque figuralism in the surrounding churches. The main motifs of Erzar’s work are the scenes of the joyous and sad part of the Rosary, the Holy Family at work, the Mary’s family etc.
