Korfantego relief

These three architectural sculptures, examples of work on Uli Korfantego, intrigue me.

Can you help me out with their meaning, relevance to the buildings, dates and artists?

Is their any intention to save them from the coming redevelopment?





and with neat graffiti...

It was built in 1969 (architect Stanisław Kwa¶niewicz). It's place where are presented pieces of art (gallery) and these sculptures refer to ancient art.

cinestep, it is nice to read that the inhabitant of England is interested with matters of Katowice!
The Modern Art Gallery (first photo) is decorated by M. Michałowska's sculptures. The Gallery was established in August, 1949 and it is one of the greatest national exhibition institution of modern art, presenting works of both polish and foreign artists.
I think, the second photo's sculpture ornaments the Wedding Palace (designed by M. Król). That's all I know:)
The Konior's Redevelopment Project promotes to save the Modern Art Gallery with its sculptures, of course. You can see it below at project's photo (the second gray building on the left):
