The bell tower in the Haná village represents a contemporary sacral and artistic element situated on a picturesque village square with traditional folk architecture.
The work is located beneath a memorial linden tree, a few dozen meters from St. Florian's Chapel, against the backdrop of a heritage-listed county -- a farm building with an arched vestibuleand an upstairs granary.
Shape of crosses-four-leaf clovers
The open structure, in the form of a 2.7 metre high and 0.7 metre deep spiky arch, is a 15 millimetre steel sheet.
This was perforated by laser technology into a diagonally arranged cross-four-leaf pattern.
The simple and elegant form of the bell also brings durability and small maintenance requirements, it is the sturdy execution of the small work that is very important when it is placed in a public space.
