Otakar Švec - Motorcyclist (Sunbeam)
In the 1920s, the sculpture production of Otakar Švec who inclined to the stream of social civility was influenced by his interest in modern time phenomena such as motor sport and sports. The three-dimensional rendering of the dynamic motion of a motorcyclist on his racing machine, which excels in the masterful combination of the figure and machine, may be understood as a symbol of elation for the speedy technical progress and upswing of technical civilisation after the First World War.
