Annotation

The inspiration for the "Burial in the Carpathians" sculpture was a photograph from a Carpathian battlefield. The original group in Austrian uniforms was remade in 1920s into a memorial of victims of WWI and placed in the village Předměřice nad Jizerou, with copies in Místek and in Nové Město na Moravě.
