Introduction

HERODEK.PL is an exclusive project of The STOG Association based in Krakow, operating since 2016 thanks to the financial support of Małopolska Province under the program ‘Małopolska Patronage’. Its effect is the website dedicated to Karol Wójciak ‘Heródek’ (1892–1969), a sculptor from Lipnica Wielka in Orawa.

Our ambition is to create the first database regarding the Artist in Poland and to make it as comprehensive as possible. We wish to keep extending it, involving the admirers of ‘Heródek’s’ original art. The website is to restore good memory of Karol Wójciak, in particular in the Orawa region. We are doing our best to ensure that the Wójciak sculpture gallery presented here serves as an educational tool in Małopolska heritage promotion. The next step will be developing the project on the national scale. We hope that the mutually conducted project will actually be the introduction to preparing a monographic exhibition to commemorate the 50th death anniversary of the Artist.
