KLACELKA



Blanik a Klacelka

V piskovcovem bloku nad udolim ricky Libechovky, 2 km severne od obce Libechov, je vytesana umela jeskyne s reliefy od libechovskeho sochare Vaclava Leveho. Je slozena ze dvou casti. Prvni cast, prostor pred jeskyni, je nazyvana Blanik. Za zeleznou brankou jsou vytesany heroické postavy z nasich narodnich dejin (v kresle drimajici vudce blanickeho vojska Zbynek ze Zasmuk, vudci husitských vojsk Jan Zizka a Prokop Holy, spici blanicke vojsko a skritky pro ne kovajici zbrane a legendarniho vudce spacu ve zbroji Jana Zasmuckeho.). Druha je vlastní umela jeskyne Klacelka, pristupna bohate zdobenym portalem. Podel sten jsou kamenne lavice, pry zde staval i kamenny stul. Steny zdobeny reliefy z bajky exkomunikovaneho kneze F. M. Klacela Ferina lisak a z predloh francouzskeho karikaturisty Grandvilla. Tata mala mistnost mela byt letni pracovnou Klacela, se kterym se Levy pratelil. Ve zvirecich postavach zpodobneny symboly nekterych lidskych vlastnosti (slabosti). Na stene naproti vchodu byl vytesan letopocet 1845, datum vzniku teto pamatky. Na blizke skalce vytesan kalich.

Kdo je Vaclav Levy

Kamenne reliefy a plastiky jsou nerozlucne spjaty se jmenem Vaclava Leveho(1820-1870), jedne z nejvyraznejsich postav ceskeho klasicistniho umeni. Dilo neuniklo pozornosti majitele panstvi, mecenase a obrozence Antonina Veita. Veith si povsiml chlapcova nadani a prislibil financovat jeho studia v Mnichove s podminkou, ze svuj talent prokaze praktickymi ukazkami. Na Veithuv popud se V.Levy rozhodl vytvorit radu piskovcovych reliefu a plastik primo do piskovcovych skal v okoli. Levy postupne ve volnych chvilich vytvoril pozoruhodnou galerii pod sirym nebem (napr. Harfenice, Had, Certovy hlavy, Klacelka atd.), ktera se dodnes velmi dobre dochovala. Po navratu z Mnichova se sochar podilel na opravach zamecke zahrady (v letech 1840 - 1845 take pracoval jako kuchar na zamku v Libechove).

POZOR !!! Ochrana kamenosocharskych pamatek ve volne prirode je nemyslitelna bez pochopeni verejnosti. Mekky nesoudrzny piskovec snadno eroduje, je narusovan nadmernou vlhkosti a emisemi, a snadno take mechanickym poskozenim, rytim do kamene, lezenim po skale, rozdelovanim ohne v jeskynich atd. !!! Proto nevyryvejte obrazce a napisy a nelezte po skale.

Cache

Ke kesce se dostanete po modre znacce od vychoziho waypointu nebo po modre od Certovych hlav. Pri hledani se spolehnete na SPOILER, signal v zalesnene oblasti neni prilis dobry.
Cache je prvni ze serie "sculptural works of V. Levy" (druha, treti).


Jako geocachersky pesi i cyklo vylet muzeme doporucit nasledujici trasu:






BLANIK


[EN]:

Klacelka is a man-made cave in a forest near Libechov, Czech Republic. It is known for complex of sculptural works made by sculptor Vaclav Levy. Name of the cave and the sculptures commemorate Frantisek Klacel (1808 - 1882), a theologist and philosopher. It was created during 1840s.

At the time of carving the Klacelka, Levy was an untutored young man. He chiseled from sandstone rock a cave that is an allegorical "Blanik" - a hall of sleeping heroes. These include leader of the soldiers of the mythological army sleeping in Blanik and Hussite leaders Jan Zizka and Prokop Holy. The walls of the cave are festooned with reliefs from fairy tales of Lisak Ferina by Klacel.

The theme of Blanik, central to the Klacelka, harks back to Protestant symbolism and the memory of the Hussite Wars, notwithstanding the Catholic monarchy of the times.
