The Peeing Statues

In the courtyard of the Hergetova cihelna (now housing the Franz Kafka Museum) you find two bronze statues who are peeing into a basin that is shaped like the Czech Republic. Their hips and penises are movable so that they can direct the water jet on various places and even write letters into the water. In fact, you can text your name to a number displayed next to the sculptures and make them pee your name.

These provocative statues were created by the artist David Černý who also designed the babies on the Prague TV Tower, Kafka’s head and the hanging horse. After your visit you may want to continue a few steps on to Prague’s narrowest alleyway.
