Highed by Hand Operated Lift. To Work on His Sculpture, in Carpet Slippers. Shows His Work in Different Stages. Working with Lead. Made Me Laugh. Assistant Working with Gloves. Health & Safety a Must !. Olbram using his Bare Hands. Much of His Work Depending on Feel. Suppose Instinct Over The Years. Cannot Say I Am Such a Big Fan Of Sculpture. This is Very Good Though. Much I Can Relate to. Like Kouros. The Jan Palach Grave Art. Melted Down. But Replaced When the Communist Era Passed. Loved the Sculpture Titled " The Victims Of Communism ". At Petrin Steps.
