As a small, non-profit organization, we could not exist without the help of those who devote their free time and experience and those who provide us with (small) donations. Thank you all!

We currently have a project that is a priority for us:

Repair of the Well Chapel

Well Chapel is a part of the Zdar estate. It is a Gothic building which was completed in 1257, less than 5 years after the founding of the Zdar monastery. The first renovation took place in 1720, according to plans by the architect Santini, the second in 2005 when it was a total reconstruction of the building and the roof. The last part of the process is the installation of the statue of the Madonna with child on its original site which had to be relocated due to works. And you can help us with that.

The Well Madonna

  • Height: 150 cm ca.
  • Width: approx 120 cm
  • Weight: 800 kg

Due to weight and size it is very difficult to manipulate with the statue, especially in such a small space, which is well chapel. It was decided that the best solution would be to manufacture replica which would be made of the same material as replicas of sculptures from the nearby baroque bridge. The replica would weight only 150 kilograms and it is good for the handling and the original statue would be placed in a museum.

Cost of producing replica: 151 000 CZK (€ 5,400)
Cost of placing replica: 234 000 CZK (€ 8,360)
