Franz Kafka Monument

Interesting
This intriguing 3.75m bronze by sculptor Jaroslav Rona was erected in 2003 for the 120th anniversary of Kafka's birth. The sculpture was inspired by Kafka's short story Description of a Struggle which tells the story of a man strolling around Prague on another man's shoulders. The sculptor portrayed Kafka sitting on the shoulders of a headless and armless giant, a mysterious image that could be an evocation of the golem or the anguish and dismay characteristic of Kafka's work.
