This exceptional monumental sculpture by the Czech prominent sculptor Olbram Zoubek belongs to the author's roughly ten-year thematic cycle, when he was inspired by Celtic art. The green polychrome sculpture, standing on a moss-covered pedestal with a signature, shows that it was intended to be placed outdoors in a space. The oblong head has a total of four faces looking out to each side of the world. The sculpture was purchased for a collection in the UK immediately after its completion. Minor damage. Assessed during consultations and authorship confirmed by PhDr. P. Bregant. Certificate of authenticity attached.
