Memorial to poet Jan Skácel

Memorial to poet Jan Skácel
An unusual sculpture stands on the slope of the Špilberk park in Brno, Czechia. More than two meter high, the face of poet Jan Skácel is looking down at the ancient centre of the city in which he lived and worked. The visitor can look in the same direction as if through the poet´s eyes because the sculpture consists of several thousand hollow steel pipes welded together horizontally.
