    Viktor displayed Stone Henge prominently over the fireplace in the living room of his Stillman Road home in Cleveland Heights for many years. During the 1980s and 90s, he produced a number of ambitious watercolors treating the subject of colossal man-made structures including temples, pyramids, and even cityscapes. As someone involved in large team projects over the course of his life, Viktor doubtless had a special admiration for, and understanding of, the effort that went into this type of monumental endeavor.
