This shrine comes from Łącko; it was donated to the Museum in 1959. It represents a type of a columnar shrine with a wooden box mounted on a debarked trunk. This chapel is topped by a gable roof, at the top of which there is a multi-segment turret, completed with a cross formed out of thin metal sheet. Inside the box, in a semi-circular, closed, deep niche, there is a carved scene depicting the fall of Christ under the cross. Christ falling, alongside the images of the crucifixion and the pensive Christ, was one of the more frequent motifs in the folk art of the 19th century.
The chapel, from the Regional Museum in Nowy Sącz, is distinguished by the figure of a Jew, Simon of Cirene, helping Jesus carry the cross. The attire of Simon of Cirene attracts attention, as, instead of ancient robes, he wears a coat, and a tall hat on his head. According to the reports, the host, in place of the original figurine of the Jew which was not preserved, had a new figure made by his shepherd, seeing that he was able to carve things well. The boy carved a Jew he had seen in Stary Sącz at a fair, dressed, according to 19th-century custom, in a long, black coat or gaberdine with a tall, wide-rimmed hat.
