  • Statue in great detail worked out. The artist seems to have made or worked with several sculptures in Prague.

  • Always when walking down the street, so the drop in this statue. Very strongly expresses the Santa ťaživú the role that it has received from God. An even greater burden on the person, therefore we, real, nepoučiteľní, dissatisfied and unfaithful people. Yet, however, can't give up the responsibility for them.

  • At a stone’s throw distance from the Old-New Synagogue along the Pařížská Street stands a bronze statue of Moses sculpted by the famous Czech Art Nouveau and Symbolist sculptor and architect František Bílek, an alumnus of Academy of Fine Arts in Prague, whose works often reflected Biblical themes or had religious connotations. This statue represents Bílek's original vision of the Old Testament prophet: a kneeling man in a larger-than-life size, writing the name of Adam on a scroll. It symbolises humankind for whom he was responsible and for whom he sought the Promised Land. František Bílek made the sculpture in 1905; however, it was placed on its current spot in 1937. Under the Nazi occupation, the statue was removed and subsequently melted. After World War II, in 1946, it was again re-casted using the original plaster model and consequently was returned to its original place.
  • Bronze state of Moses scribing 'Adam'
  • The statue of the old testament Moses Bielecka is on Paris Street, near the Jewish quarter. Created in the beginning of 20 century.
