„The award for the protection efforts is represented by a statue 35cm in height. The torso of a woman represents the data world, that can be threatened just like anything of some fragile charm. This torso carries a pointed shield as a symbol of their efforts to protect themselves. After the protection nature has passed, the torso expresses a positive view of the past efforts and retains its aesthetic potential as an appreciation of lasting significance.“ – the author of the statue, the academic sculptor Petr Šedivý

Sculptor Petr Šedivý was born in 1948 in Prague. He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague in the year of 1976. He joined the academy and worked as an assistant of the professor Jiří Bradáček in the sculpture studio until 1984. He continued his pedagogical activities until 1990 as an assistant to the sculptor Miloš Axman. In 1988 he received a scholarship from the organisation Fulbright in America for one year. Petr Šedivý created several works, especially for the construction of the Prague metro. The most famous one being his fountain „Sjednocená Evropa“ from 1981 located in the Jiřího z Poděbrad Square.
