Pavel Charousek is an award-winning sculptor of international repute who
    trained    as a sculptor of stone in a school with a 130-year-old tradition in
    Horice, Czech Republic. He continued his artistic education at the Academy
    of Fine and Applied Arts in Prague, where he received his Masters in Fine
    Arts, majoring in sculpture.

    A sculptor whose work epitomizes beauty and dignity, Mr. Charousek has
    created enduring monuments for well known personalities, carved alters for
    churches, designed and realized heraldic symbols for towns, created plaques
    for institutions, libraries and universities, as well as restored sculptures from
    the Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque periods.

    vignettes to full scale, free standing sculptures and deeply expressive true-to-
    life portraits. He works comfortably in a range of materials, including marble,
    bronze and granite.
