Much appreciated, Jindrich -- thank you for sharing!
I haven't heard of Milan Vobruba before, so it is a pleasure to see his work... some of it seems to have been inspired by First Nations / Native art which I find beautiful.  I also enjoyed the slightly vulgar sculpture, but don't tell anyone. :)

Thanks, Jindrich, for sharing another excellent artist with us.  Does he use enamels to paint and/or graal?  Hard to maek out the technique is some of the pieces. All very impressive.
