Ape-man looking up into the sky symbolizes the springing up of ancient civilization; today, high civilization brings advanced material culture, yet the nature we live on is being damaged unceasingly. The perplexed eyesight and innocent face of ape-man reveals the desire to correct all of these faults and to step towards a brighter future. The title originates from my sense of social reality. I express my upset towards the deviated part in the ocean of civilization we live in with this series of works and appeal for more attention to beautiful things.
The sculpture was 25.8.2020 moved to Venice.
The Guardian statue originally came into existence as a small piece . Last year I came to a conclusion its form as well as theme would be suitable for recreating it on a monumental scale.
And what can be said about the sculpture itself? As for myself, I feel these are troubled times, sometimes even turbulent, and the world seems to be changing for the worse. Besides other things, we perhaps also need a guard, a powerful strong guard. There even might be a time when the knights of Blaník will have to be called to save us.
