The Dead Horse: Upside Down

In the centre of Prague, right at the Wenceslas Square, you find the Lucerna Palace and inside its atrium a funny statue, called “The dead horse”.

The rider is, of course, the same Wenceslas who rides the horse in front of the National Museum.

The upside-down version is the work of David Černý, a Czech sculptor who is known for his provocative creations.

Not everyone in Europe was delighted by his “Entropa” where some countries have received a serious punch below the belt.

This is Černý’s map of Bulgaria:
