Long Description:
Lea Vivot (born as Drahomíra Lea Hekelová in 1954) is a Czech-born Canadian sculptor. She has studied at the Ontario College of Art in Toronto, Ontario as well as Prague, Czechoslovakia, Milan, Italy and New York, United States. Although her main focus is sculpture, Vivot is also active in drawing and printmaking. Vivot’s over life-sized bronze sculptures are figurative and often depict families, couples, mothers, children, and other subjects of humanity. Most of her sculptures include benches, which have become her trademarks. The statue located in front of HQ of Czech Lottery Corporation "Sazka" depicts a young man holding newspaper, where he probably found that he just won lottery first prize. Next to him there is pocket of money on the bench. Why the girl is kneeling in front of him with her head in his lap? It depends on your imagination. If you are not jealous you can sit next to him and enjoy from his luck ;-)

!!! The object "Bench of Vice" was really removed and probably will be sold. Nevertheless I let the waymark here, as I understand one of the role of waymarking also like very valuable source of evidence that "sometimes something" was here).
!!! I kdyz Lavicka neresti byla odsud odstranena, ponechávám waymark. Hlavne proto, že já chápu roli waymarkingu také jako velmi cenný zdroj informací, že neco tady nekdy bylo. Samozrejmne pokud "odpovední" usoudí, že tahle role je zbytecná, tak jej smažu.
