Sculpture of the Old Testament prophet

Info text

In the center of the Pařížská Street, near the Old-New Synagogue, stands a bronze statue of Moses by František Bílek. The statue represents the Bílek's original vision of the Old Testament prophet: a kneeling man in a larger-than-life size, writing the name of ADAM on a scroll symbolising humankind, for which he is responsible and for which

he sought the promised land. František Bílek made the sculpture in 1905; however, it was placed on its current spot in 1937. Under the Nazi occupation, the statue was removed and subsequently melted. After World War II, in 1946, it was again re-casted using the original plaster model and consequently was returned to its original place.
