The bas-relief present the coat of arms of the Kingdom of Serbia of 1888. The neoclassical sculpture is a sitting female figure -- a wreath of laurels on her head, a sword in her left hand, her right arm pointing south to Kosovo (still in the Ottoman empire at the time) -- is most likely an allegory of the Kingdom of Serbia, rather than "the Kosovo maiden" as some seem to call it.en_US
