It is the concept of symbolic displayal of specific character of biblical prophets in general. The meeting with Prophet is also meeting with law - word. Spectator standing in front of portrait encounters "spiritual" authority and reads in his face specific messages related to prophetic texts.

Koloman Sokol, Searching good, 2009

Significant Slovak artist Koloman Sokol is displayed as figure looking through window frame. I point out his specific view on world, work and view on world through work as well. Frame is like filter made by his ideas. Framing may also remind Sokol's creation of his own life of Kaburaby, avoiding evil and own framing of existence. He is displayed as looking at the sky - to the height where he sees his truth, justice, purpose of life. Sculpture of Koloman Sokol was created by similar approach as he approached to work. He did not want to build on realistic representation neither on similarity but display somehow reflection of his inside, life and work.
