Hi Stuart

Made by sculptor David Cerny in 1999 it hangs in the Lucerna Gallery Prague, It portrays King Wenceslas on an upside down dead horse . This uncanny disruption of the equestrian statue model through the replacement of a living for a dead horse recalls a helplessness for both man and beast and the historical helplessness experienced by the citizens of the Czech Republic in their quest for democracy.

Thanks mike, I like this shot.   I  didn't realize the sculpture  was hanging there when I was last in Prague. King Wenceslas actually was the Duke of Bohemia and after his death by his brother he was promoted to King, The Holy Roman Emperor  Otto l gave him the title posthumously.

Thanks Henry, it’s such a beautiful place full of history, one place to put on your bucket list
