Geocache Description:




Certovy hlavy

Na piskovcovém bloku nad obci Zelizy. Reliefy dvou hlav pohadkovych bytosti, pripominajicich snad certy, vytesane do dvou skalnich bloku. Sestimetrove obliceje vytesane ve skale pry predstavuji nekdejsi obyvatele Libechova.

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

[EN]:

In a pine forest above the village of Zelizy the famous sculptor Vaclav Levy carved out huge reliefs, resembling the heads of devils, from a massive block of rock. In the 1840s Levy was employed as a cook at the Libechov Chateau and that is why you can find his sculptures in the surroundings of Libechov.
