Theme of the Workshop is Ave, Imperator, morituri te salutant! Workshop closing exhibition will be opened on August 6th, 2013 at the ancient Amphitheater in Solin. In December 2013 sculptures will be planted in eight locations, former Roman military camps and settlements along the Roman road from ancient Salona to ancient Narona. During sculpture workshop artists are called to make portraits of "Imperators" (Emperors) in stone. Pillars (pedestals) will be up to 150cm high and 40cm in diameter. Those are stone pillars that will carry Roman emperors' portrait heads. These sculptures will be a direct indication to Roman memorial milestones placed on Roman roads for the emperors' glory, carrying inscriptions with the exact distances between places expressed in Roman miles. Portraits of emperors made by artists will be planted on those pillars/milestones. Concept of the inscription is also a part of artist's idea. After ten days of workshop sculptures will be transported from Visočani quarry to Solin's Amphitheater for the closing exhibition Ave, Imperator, morituri te salutant which will be solemnly opened on August 6th, 2013.
