The work at the exhibition was all very nice. There were many wonderful carvings. Your emptiness sculpture/carving is very interesting. It brings to me an image of a wizards cloak. very nice!

And I feel that emptiness when I look at it, and a little scared.
I love it.

It’s quite thought provoking and you’ve done a nice job on it.

Very interesting project! I like how you have a very dark sillouette surrounded by a very light cape. Also inside the dark sillouette their seems to be a face that is very empty and lost. Very creative Jiri!!!!!
