Sculptor Olbram Zoubek // 1996

Olbram Zoubek (21 April 1926 – 15 June 2017) was a contemporary Czech sculptor and designer. His work was inspired by Swiss-Italian sculptor Alberto Giacometti. Zoubek was particularly well known for having taken a death mask of Jan Palach, a Charles University student who burned himself to death in protest over the 1968 Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia.

One of his most famous works is his “Memorial to the Victims of Communism” in Prague. (Wikipedia)
