Jaroslav Horejc / Aphrodite
Equally significant were his uncommissioned sculptural works. In terms of style they were influenced by Greek and Etruscan art, while the subject matter was inspired by classical mythology. They are a synthesis of Decorativism and expressiveness in sculptural terms and passion and emotionality in terms of content. That applies to the statue Orpheus (1916), reflecting the tragic aspect of human beauty and Aphrodite, which is delicate and perfect, balancing composition and inner expressive power.
