Joseph Beuys, the legendary late German artist and theorist, once wrapped a real grand piano in felt and painted a red cross on it. Antonín Kašpar created a total of 14 steel pianos, from whose top boards the crosses rise askew to the sky. The crosses might be receiving or transmitting signals from or to the cosmos; or maybe both at the same time. When the author later visited a gallery in Frankfurt where he saw the original Beuys’ work, he decided to name his own work the Tribute to JB.

The next SCULPTURE LINE festival will again introduce you to sculptures and art objects of leading home and international artists in the "open air" gallery. Czech streets, squares and other public spaces will decorate dozens of fine art works of famous and young artists from both, czech and from abroad.
The purpose of the exhibition is to enhance and enrich the public space, to offer a new look to cities and to the works of art, both for the inhabitants and for the visitors.
We invite you to the streets. Join the Line, enjoy the Line!
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).
