In the quarry located in Mrákotín u Telče stone-cutters split off and shaped a monolith to be taken to the Prague Castle. Following its ceremony placing on a special support frame the monolith is ready for transportation. The steel frame is drawn by tractors and the monolith, moving on beech planks, is transported to the Telč railway station. The monolith is then transported to Prague; we can see crowds of people watching the transportation. The monolith is then transported from the railway station in Prague to the courtyard of the Prague Castle. Then the film shots present a detailed description of installation of the monolith, including technical drawings (made by Karel Dodal). The monolith is being further shaped and then it is erected on the courtyard during a festive ceremony.
