Studied at Academy of Arts, Architecture & Design in Prague. Besides the art of sculptures, Jakub is active in snowboarding – snowboardcross. He is a head couch of Czech junior snowboardcross national team and also of Eva Samková, the Winter Olympics winner (Sochi 2014). He himself is a former national team member and also a vice-champion of the Czech Republic.
Head of the Horse
A horse is the most common animal to be displayed in the classic sculpture. On the memorials of the famous military leaders he is put on the same level. This is not only because of his importance in the fight, but also because of his shape, beauty, statue, movement and energy. Put all of this into a still sculpture was for me a great challenge, which brought me closer to my predecessors (Josef Václav Myslbek, Bohumil Kafka and others).
