Rudar - Prometheus is already watching over Trbovlje, in memory of generations of miners

An eight-meter iron sculpture of Rudar - Prometheus already stands on Ostri vrh in Trbovlje; a memorial erected in memory of generations of miners. Prometheus' headlight will shine across the valley to the mine shaft at Guida, where it will illuminate the mining coat of arms on the tower. A heart formed of coal, however, will begin to be in the rhythm of the heartbeat for the first time at the opening, which we look forward to when the measures are released.

The sculpture will be illuminated from the inside, and the headlight of the mining Prometheus will shine across the valley to the mine shaft at Guida, where it will illuminate the mining coat of arms on the tower. 

"Our ancestors are the ones who, with their own blisters and sweat, laid the foundations for three cities that are changing from former mining towns to high-tech and advanced ones,"  said in May. at the presentation of the project said the former director of the Trbovlje-Hrastnik Mine Ivan Berger, who initiated the installation of the sculpture.

 

 

In Greek mythology, Prometheus, one of the titans, stole fire from Olympus and brought it to humans. Zeus therefore punished him, chained him to a rock in the Caucasus, where a hawk pecked at his liver every day.

 

The statue of the author Zoran Poznic  was made possible by voluntary contributions, donations, "and above all the will to help , all who have been asked for any help ", added in the Society. The workshop will also feature Prometheus' Heart, a creation by designer Marjeta Hribar 

 "Everything is ready and Miner Prometheus is waiting. normalize the situation as soon as possible so that we can all be fully proud of our new acquisition.

As part of the commemorative material dedicated to the statue, the designer also made book indexes and key chains Prometheus Heart, which are an original accessory and souvenir.
