Long Description:

Depicted cast-iron life size statue of founder can be found in the front of the early-Baroque Old Chateau (Starý zámek), currently seat of the Horovice Regional Museum, in town Horovice.

The sculpture of the founder was cast in 1957 by the workers of the Czechoslovak diesel engine plants in Horovice according to a plaster model borrowed from the foundry of the national company Caloria in Príbram. The impetus was the artistic decoration of industrial plants in the Soviet Union, which the company's employees visited in 1957. The statue was located in front of the entrance of a newly built foundry where it stood until the Velvet Revolution in 1989.

In 2011, it was donated to the town of Horovice by the pool manufacturer Albicon Ltd., the current owner of the former foundry complex.

Sector of the workforce: founder

Created or Donated by which group: Albixon Ltd.
