The Franciscan gallery "Mother"

As part of the Franciscan Monastery Humac, Ljubuški, a collection of works of art, with its permanent exhibition entitled Mother, was opened in 2004. The idea of founding the collection came from Dr. Fr. Ljudevit Rupčić and Dr. Fr. Viktor Nuić. The two decided to open a collection in 2001 as a joint donation to the monastery in Humac. Over the course of three years, the collection has multiplied. Thanks to donations from good people, the space of the former library was thoroughly renovated, so the collection, thanks to donations of works of the required artistic level and sponsors, was ceremoniously opened. The collection contains about 250 works of art, of which almost 140 are sculptures in various materials, and the rest are paintings, drawings and graphics.

In the 15th century, the Kosača family ruled the area of Hum (Herzegovina) and was one of the most powerful noble families in the Kingdom of Bosnia. There are assumptions that the family was named after the village of Kosač near the Piva and Tara river. The influence and power of Kosača can be seen during the time of the first Bosnian king Tvrtko I.
