Zemdega Kārlis (18941963)

Sculptor Kārlis Zemdega created significant monuments. His works are laconic, usually single or two figure compositions. Zemdegas works also use allegory, which express a concrete idea and simultaneously also a universal one. His most prominent work is a tombstone for poet Rainis (1935), which provides an artists interpretation of creative activity and the human spiritual aspiration for freedom, through an allegorical image of a young man.
