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.
