This is your chance to own a true piece of Eastern European culture. While original sculptures by this artist are difficult to come by as it is, this bronze sculpture is one of only TWO ever made. The other is in private possession of the artist himself. No more can ever be made, as the original form does not exist anymore.

This owl, like most of the works of Lukáč, represents the struggle of people versus political oppression. It is an archetypal symbol of wisdom and knowledge.

Milan Lukáč (born 1962) is the sculptor of the Holocaust memorial on "Rybné námestie" in Bratislava, Slovakia. He has also sculpted the "Iron Curtain" monument close to Devin Castle, near Bratislava, which was unveiled by the Queen of the United Kingdom, Elizabeth II herself.

In 1995, Lukáč sculpted a bust of Pope John Paul II, which the Pope personally received during his 1995 visit to Slovakia.
