Sculptor and jewellery maker Pavel Opočenský (born 1954) is an artist who consistently processes stone, such as granite or syenite, in his works. He completes or distorts the stone blocks in a minimalist and serial way, the most famous of these works is probably the monument to the Čapek brothers on Náměstí míru (Peace Square) in Prague's Vinohrady district. Other works from this period can also be found in the Hostivař Golf Gallery. In addition to his large stone realisations, however, he is also a renowned designer and creator of jewellery, thus fulfilling the notion that in every man there is, in addition to the passionately large and thunderous position, also that of the minuscule and fragile.
