Almost 250 years ago earl František Antonín Špork and sculptor Matyáš Bernard Braun wanted to realize Calvary, which should have connected Hospital of Kuks with Braun’s Bethlehem. Intention remained unfulfilled. This idea was approached by o.s. Calvary, which was established by academic sculptor Vladimír Preclík five years ago. After many discussions group gained to conclusion, that to imprint traditional legend, which is showing us the crucial stops of Jesus last journey by liturgics language since Francis from Assisi, is no longer actual. Plan evolved into individual reflection of traditional motive. In the project called “Journey of Hope and Misery of Man” were participating our fifteen most significant sculptors - Vojtěch Adamec, Jan Koblasa, Stanislav Hanzík, Marius Kotrba, Jan Hendrych, Elen a Ivan Jilemničtí, Daniel Klose, Václav Fiala, Čestmír Mudruňka, Michal Šarše, Jiří Marek, Jaromíra Němcová, Jiří Kačer.
