This sculpture is the author's reminder of the millennial tradition of Christian culture in Europe and our country. The author reminds us what is so much needed today - the basic rules of personal relationships and decent human behavior. All this is written in the Ten Commandments. Antonín Kašpar says: Many people, under the term culture, represent only art as such. But culture in the true sense of the word is also how we behave, how we express ourselves, how we raise our children and, last but not least, what remains here as a message to future generations. The purpose of my sculptures is for a perceptive viewer to think about these things when looking at them. Therefore, the size, height of these sculptures is so important. Climb or sit under this THRONE and you will immediately understand where your place is and how ridiculous it is to raise and emphasize your own importance.
