Votive statue of the Holy Trinity

The Votive statue of the Holy Trinity is a stone statue built in Tvrđa in the first half of the 18th century. The making of the statue was funded by Baroness Doroteja Petraš, who was the widow of a Hussar general, vice marshal Maksimilijan Petraš, in memory of a vow to God to help Slavonians and save them from the plague epidemic. It is known that her husband died of the plague, which is one of the main reasons why she decided to build the monument. The statue was built in baroque style, and its base is a square narrowing upwards. The statue consists of a high pedestal with five statues of patron saints: Saint Roch, Saint Francis Xavier, Saint Sebastian, Saint Charles Borromeo, and Saint Rosalia. On the pedestal rises a tall pillar on which is the sculptural group of the Holy Trinity, and later an external footer was added, on which mini-statues of Saint Catherine, Holy Mary with Child Jesus, Saint Joseph with Child Jesus and Saint Ambrose are situated.
