The statue dedicated to fallen Slovenian soldiers of the 17th Infantry Regiment in Ljubljana cemetery was begun in 1916 by sculptor Svetoslav Peruzzi and completed by sculptor Lojze Dolinar. The monument was later set on the staircase of the charnel house of World War I victims, which was designed by Plečnik’s student architect Edvard Ravnikar and opened on 10 December 1939. The charnel house holds the remains of 5,258 fallen soldiers and prisoners of war.
