Ghostly sculptures draw attention to dilapidated St. George’s church

Earlier this year, Jakub Hadrava, a third-year student of sculpture at the University of West Bohemia, made international headlines with an unusual installation at St. George’s church, a dominant but dilapidated site located in Lukova in the picturesque Plzeň countryside. Consisting of more than a dozen life-sized ghostly figures – which the artist seated in the church’s pews – the installation began attracting attention earlier this year, becoming a focal point for tourists from as close by as Germany and far off as Brazil.
