“St. Joseph Altarpiece”, rabitz mesh, 2020, St. Joseph's Church in Slavětín
The concept for the interior fully respects the mission of this church and its history. It is clearly inspired by the historical altar painting, with a depiction of St. Joseph and the Christ Child known to us from the surviving records of the original interior. The group of figures has been composed with the sculptural interpretation of classic altar art in mind, openly paying homage to renaissance and baroque masters, while respecting the spatial layout of the church. The central subject is the story of Saint Joseph, who, cradling the Christ Child in his arms, stands at the center of the composition. Consequently, the members of the Holy Family – the Virgin Mary, Saint Joseph, and the Christ Child – are the only human figures depicted. Angels played a fundamental role in the life of Joseph, and thus the Holy Family is complemented by angelic figures engaged in prophesy, protection, adoration, and reception.

24 figures - 10 children, 14 adult figures, mildly over life-sized, rabitz mesh, working progress 2019/2020, weight 5 - 15 kg/ figure. Hanging on 1mm steel ropes.
