Sculptural fund consists of works by Mijo Kuzman, Bara Mustafa, Dragica Belkovic, Kresimir Trumbetas, Kata Vizvari, Zvonimir Dangubic and many others made mostly from wood.

Naive sculpture begins to develop in the 1950s, that lasts to this day.

Mato Generalic is one of the first authors who develops naive sculpture, characterized by exceptional narrativity.

In 1970s women began to make sculptures too, mostly related to women body, jobs and customs

Poetry and expressiveness in simple forms.

Calmness slightly tense forms. Dragica Belkovic describes the quiet daily life. Sculptures sputter internal energy, intimacy and familiarity.

The simplicity of the sculptor is reflected in the choice of the most common threads from everyday life. Shaping generally remains robust, with distinguished the most important peasant "attributes" - hands and feet - which are the main prerequisite for survival in a harsh environment. The compositions are symmetrical and predominantly closed form figures dissolve into the supporting elements of the basic motif.

Each pleat carries its own story, each garment carefully and differently carved or embossed slowly resulting in the richness of different surfaces and textures on which the light creates extraordinary fractures.

Simple sharply cut sculptures, realism without a lot of detail. Psychological treatment expressed with only a several cuts.

Kresimir Trumbetas summarize his sculptures in a pose or a gesture. Playfulness.

Minimalism in shaping products expressionism in the expression. Serenity, joy and happiness.
