Virtues and Vices

Statues are the soul of Kuks – dozens stand here, there and everywhere. The most popular are the Virtues and the Vices - 24 women representing the good and the bad in all of us. Created by Matthias Bernard Braun - a highly talented artist, they are examples of the best Czech Baroque had to offer.

The Virtues (on the left)
Faith, Hope, Charity, Patience, Wisdom, Bravery, Chastity, Diligence, Generosity, Sincerity, Justice and Temperance

The Vices (on the right)
Pride, Parsimony, Envy, Fornication, Gluttony, Anger, Sloth, Despair, Frivolity, Slander and Deceit

The Terrace (centre)
8 statues of the Beatitudes, either side of a Religious-themed statue. Left, to the front of the Virtues: The Angel of Happy Death; right, in front of the Vices: The Angel of Pitiful Death.
