The Surrealistically Whimsical Sculptures of Libor Hurda

Libor Hurda describes himself as both an artist and a blacksmith. This Czech sculptor, who lives in the small town of Pehlrimov, makes large metal sculptures that often add a playful fancifulness to practical objects, such as this fully functional staircase railing that shows a tired laborer hauling it into place.

I'm especially taken with this door. The flying man of nebulous form holds open a window. It would be ideal for a classroom, especially for an art classroom.

This more somber piece shows actress Audrey Hepburn swinging, magically held aloft by two birds.

This life-size gunslinger will draw out paired wine bottles appropriate for any meal.
