Column of statued Jesus Christ used to embellish the middle of the square once, and the inscription "Ecce homo – Look, the Man!" from the column is now being preserved in the museum collection in the Laško Mansion. The frontage of the house is decorated by Medusa's head – the Roman demigoddess, the gate-keeper which proves Laško to have been settled even before the Roman times. The relief is believed to be carved in the Celje stonecutting workshop in the first half of the 2nd century probably. Medusa, a feature of a horrors giving woman of a snake-like hair, has rooted anybody wicked to the spot. Those,however, who had the best intention were accorded a warm welcome. For this reason, the Romans used to place Medusa's image onto the upper arches of grave-stones, temples, public buildings. Small-sized images of Medusa's head were carried by people as amulets against evil spirits. Beyond the entrance door, there is a medieval head "konzola" staring at us and is supposed to be transfered from the almshouse chapel. A memory tablet dedicated to Franc Orožen, a geographer and the first president of the Slovene Climbing Club, born in this house in 1853, is set on to the frontage of the house. He wrote all kinds of geography books for schools and expert discussion articles to magazines. Beside previously mentioned functions, he was also the president of the Slovene First Society of Professors, a member of a committee of the Museum Society of Carniola as well as the memeber of the Subterranean Caves Researching Society.
