Neptune at the New Town Hall
web_Fotor.jpgThe statue of fine sandstone created in 1875-1877 by the sculptor Bohuslav Schnirch at the design of the architect Jan Vorlíček has been a decoration of the entrance hall of the New Town Hall since January 2015.

Since May 2015 (every Tuesday between 14:00 and 16:00), the statue can be seen free of charge by the public. The entry is through the foyer at the reception.

The statue, which together with the fountain formed a compact set of garden architecture and was put in front of an artificial grotto in Havlíček Gardens in Vinohrady, Prague, disappeared from Grébovka at the end of the 1970s. After a long search, it was eventually discovered in the garden of the fortified house of Třebotov.

In the summer of 2014, academic sculptor Vojtěch Adamec, who also produced two copies of the statue, was entrusted with the restoration of the statue. One replica is currently back in Havlíček Gardens again, and the other one was taken by Jan Sedláček, who once bought the statue without realizing that it was a lost, possibly stolen piece of work.

Just before the end of the year, December 30, 2014, following the decision of the Department of Monument Care of the City of Prague, the original sculpture was moved to the New Town Hall in Karlovo Square before it finds its permanent place in the Lapidarium of the National Gallery.

A discussion is being held about who the statue depicts, and it will be necessary to wait for the conclusions following a thorough professional assessment: www.ceskatelevize.cz/ct24/regiony/299286-pribeh-zmizele-a-znovu-nalezene-sochy-a-jednoho-historickeho-omylu/. The most important thing now is that it has been saved, restored and preserved for future generations.
