košík(Smírčí kříž u Louček) - Svatý Jiří

Svatý Jiří, Loučky

GPS: 49°58'53.04"N 16°15'33.72"E ((The marked position is only approximate.))

It stands in a high pine forest slightly inclined and its dark green patina blends in with the surroundings. Its rounded shoulders are wedge shaped. One shoulder is shorter, but does not carry signs of damage from the past. It is as if the medieval stonemason had a rock that was too short or a piece fell off while sculpting and so he shortened the beam for this reason. Or it had a different symbolic significance, which will remain forever secret. The cross is 100 cm tall, 62 cm wide and 26 cm thick. Today, nobody knows whether it was built voluntarily or as a punishment, or as a plea for forgiveness...
