St. Wenceslas Riding A Dead Horse

phil decocco

Fort Myers,, United States

Artist's Description

In the Lucerna Pasaz mall in Prague, in the Czech Republic. there is a statue St. Wenceslas, the patron saint, riding a dead horse upside down. It is a work of the Czech artist David Cerny, parodying the current state of the Czech establishment and the erosion of heritage and values.
Relevant and ironical, because, just outside is the 100 year old St. Wenceslas Square with him riding a horse in glory.
After the Velvet Revolution against the Russians, he painted a soviet tank PINK.
