The figure on display was created by Jaroslav Ježek at the turn of the 1950s and 1960s. It stands on a rounded plinth which in fact forms the bird’s legs and the hind part of its wings that fuse into a unified whole. The pelican is ruffled, priding itself with its wings, and is probably captured in a situation when he shows himself off before a female or, eventually, before a rival. The proud gesture is crowned by a head bent sideways and by a lifted beak. As it is characteristic for the artist’s oeuvre, the figure is totally absent of all excessive details which underlines the overall emotional effect. The otherwise white figure is decorated with a violet strip on the top of the head. The photograph of the sculpture was used as an emblem of the catalogue to the presently running Prague exhibition “The Brussels Dream”.
