Czech streets will come alive with international sculpture festival SCULPTURE LINE
Dostál's Creature rules the Prague's city centre
Sculptures can be made in different ways, but making a big statue is a story in itself. Just one year after graduating from Gabriel's sculpture studio at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Brno, Jan Dostál, a very young sculptor, has embarked on his 12-meter high work, his biggest so far. The motive is the Creature, a figure and non-figure at the same time, assembled and welded from pieces of sharp iron which is the material the sculptor lives with and loves.
Sculpture festival in public space Sculpture Line came up with a new platform for the "wintering" exhibited statues, called Winter Depot.
