Andrija Buvina (also known as Andrea Buvina,[1] or Andrea Guvina[1][2]) was a 13th-century medieval Croatian sculptor and painter. His work is often associated with the Romanesque period. Actually, the best example of Romanesque sculpture in Croatia is the wooden door on Cathedral of St. Duje in Split, done by Andrija Buvina c. 1214.[2] Two wings of Buvina wooden door which is 530 cm in height, contains 28 scenes from the life of Jesus Christ, separated by rich ornaments in wood.
