Art decorations and minor architecture formed integral part of historical gardens in Prague. These artworks, exposed to the weather for dozens of years, gradually disappeared from the gardens; either they were destroyed for good or had to be replaced by copies. Saved original sculptures and architectural elements were stored in the depositories of the Prague City Gallery. These exhibits include stone fountains with figures of the Nereid and dolphins from Troja Château, found in the 1980s during the reconstruction of the château and its gardens. The exhibition also presents original sculptures from Vrtbovská Garden, a group of Chinese people from the landscape park Cibulka, or Braun’s sculptures from Villa Portheimka.
