<p>Jaroslav Horejc is noted as the artist who created these. <br />
<br />
&quot;12 figural compositions of agricultural works of the year for the grid of the southern portal of the Golden Gate of the Cathedral of St. Vita in Prague (1930–1955), the author of the design of the lattice was architect Jan Sokol.<br />
<br />
The Golden Gate in Prague is the designation for the arcade vestibule of the southern entrance to the Church of St. Vitus in Prague Castle. The name is derived from the golden background of the unique glass mosaic of the Last Judgment from 1370–1372. On the floor of the vestibule is a chamber where the Czech crown jewels are placed.<br />
<br />
In front of the southern portal of the cathedral, a Gothic trunk with three pointed arches extends into the third courtyard of Prague Castle, while the entrance itself is formed by a semicircular arch in the manner of a triumphal arch with a pair of diagonally placed gates. The original design of the vestibule with the introduced central pillar and the ingenious design of the ribbed vault is the work of Petr Parléř. On the first floor, behind the facade decorated with mosaics, there is a chamber of crown jewels accessible by a staircase from  the chapel of St. Wenceslas. The normally unused entrance is closed on the outside by a lattice with a cycle of bronze reliefs of twelve months by Jaroslav Horejc from the 1950s.<br />

<p>&quot;The St. Vitus Cathedral has two organ casings. The upper façade belonged to a baroque organ, which was built in 1765 by Anton Gartner. It had 40 stops on 3 manuals and pedals. This case is purely decorative. The associated work was transported around 1909 and was lost.<br />
<br />
The lower neoclassical casing contains today's main organ. It was built by Josef Melzel in the years 1929–31. A general overhaul was carried out by the organ builder Brachtl a Kánský (1999–2001). The rather modest instrument in relation to the large church space has 58 stops on 3 manuals and pedals, 4,475 pipes in total. The action is purely pneumatic. With a large number of basic pipes (flutes and principals) and little reeds (trumpets), the instrument has a rather gentle tone – a typical feature of post-Romantic organs.<br />
