The basic tendency to create works of art is always individualistic. It is born out of a personal reaction, escalated into artistic action, from a subjective point of view.

From the first third of the 4th century CE to the early part of the 5th, there was a cemetery beneath present-day Gosposvetska Street, to the west of the main northern approach road to the Roman Emona.
