Stone Treasures from Prague Gardens

Artistic decoration and minor architectural pieces formed an integral part of the historical gardens of Prague. These artworks, exposed to the vagaries of the weather for decades, gradually disappeared from the gardens; they were either destroyed irretrievably or had to be replaced by copies. Saved original sculptures and architectural elements were stored in the depositories of the Prague City Gallery. These exhibits include stone fountains with figural motifs of Nereids and dolphins from Troja Château, found in the 1980s during the reconstruction of the château and its gardens. The exhibition also presents original sculptures from Vrtba Garden, a group of Chinese figures from the Cibulka landscape park, and Braun’s sculptures from the Portheimka villa.
