The monument of a “Slavonian Mother praying and mourning” is located in the recently renovated town’s cemetery. The monument is commemorating Croatian soldiers who fought in the Croatian War of Independence. The monument is the work of Ivan Križanac, a sculptor from Vinkovci.
It depicts a Slavonian woman in traditional costume which kneels in prayer for her son killed in combat, and faces the Stations of the Cross. It symbolizes an ordinary woman, whose contribution to her homeland was the most valuable one – the lives of her children.
