Josef Axman studied in Hořice at the first school of stoneworking in Central Europe (created in 1884) and was considered a disciple of Josef Václav Myslbek. Jossef Axman is one of the most improtant sculptors to emerge from the school in that quarter century, along with Frantisek Bilek and Ladislav Saloun. He created many monuments in the region of Morovia such the marble war monument in Nedvědice (constructed in 1925) and the bronze door of the Church of the Assumption in Hostýn, now in the Czech Republic.
