The sculpture depicts the legendary moment when Arthur, the sovereign of the kingdom of Logres, the leader of the Britons of the 5th-6th centuries, removes destined for him magical sword Excalibur from the stone. According to one legend, Excalibur was forged by the blacksmith god Velund himself.

The sword is a symbol of spiritual power and victory over all circumstances, the blessing of Heaven for destined accomplishments. Only the ruler who has a pure, good and fearless heart can lead their people to the promised heights of spiritual development.
