Václav Cigler and Michal Motyčka with the support of the town of Litomyšl and philanthropists have created a unique sacred light installation for places with special purposes such as the interior of the Piarist Church of the Finding of the Holy Cross in Litomyšl. The authors' objective is the transformation resulting from the perception of the viewer within the meaning of the worship of God, i.e. art in which man still recalls his presence and his role.

Column with reflective Surface 2014 
A triangular prism of optical glass hanging from the centre of the dome over a circular glass surface evoking the colour of water. The prism splits light forming a rainbow – like the symbol mentioned in the Bible.

Altar Table – Refectory 2014
An object in the form of a glass cube lit from within. The light thus emitted, alternately of greater and lesser intensity has an inherently spiritual value associated with the given space and its ability to reach out and address also the contemporary viewer.

Illuminated Cross, 2015
Past, present and future come together in the event of light currents, which creates significant content by means of the intersecting church naves in the form of the space of a cross.
