Old sculptures of Sebastian Fesinger, located on the roof of the 300-year-old Dominican Cathedral, are planned to be restored.

This was reported by Channel 24.

The Head of the Department of Historic Environment Protection of Lviv City Council, Lilia Onyshchenko, has noted that the renovation of sculptures was launched in early September and is planned to be over before the end of October 2020, Channel 24 reports citing the Facebook page of LCC.

The amount to be allocated for renovation can not yet be stated, because the work is very troublesome. It is worth noting that the Cathedral is being restored in this volume almost for the first time, so the final result is not yet known for sure.

In 2019, all the windows in the church were reconstructed, about 500 square meters of stained glass were restored, oak window frames were replaced, and metal grilles were restored. And in 2020, the reconstruction of the roof and dome was completed.

Sebastian Fesinger was a German-born sculptor and architect of the mid-18th century. He is considered one of the leading representatives of Lviv Rococo, along with Johann Georg Pinsel and Anton Osinsky.
