Nagrobnik na Žalah (Gravestone at Žale)


One of the two gravestones designed by Plečnik that are located in Kamnik and its surroundings can be found at Žale cemetery in Kamnik. The gravestone of the Gabrovec family is located in Žale cemetery, set in 1950. Originally, Plečnik designed it for the family of locksmiths and blacksmiths, the Končan family from Domžale. Afterwards, Franc Končan created it, based on the design, for the Gabrovec family. The iron, cone-shaped spiral with a cross and eternal light atop it stands on a granite base.
