Taken in Praugue the statue of Franz Kafka Statue jewish area


This statue was unveiled in December 2003. It stands next to the Spanish Synagogue in Prague’s Jewish Quarter.
Franz Kafka’s Statue
Non-traditional bronze statue, 3.75m tall, weighs 800 kg. The sculptor Jaroslav Róna found his inspiration in one of Kafka’s short stories – “Description of a Struggle”. David Vávra is the co-creator of the architectural placement of the statue. The statue was unveiled on 4 December 2003. Location: Prague 1, Dušní ulice a Vězeňská.
In one of the tucked away corners of Prague, very near to the school Prague, is a bronze statue of Kafka. In my opinion, the artist did a perfect job of capturing all the weirdness of Kafka’s personality and work. As you can see in the picture above, Kafka is portrayed as riding on the shoulders of a headless, handless man. To me, this is a portrayal of Kafka being carried away by his imagination. If you’ve read his work, I’m sure you can understand why I feel this way.
Franz Kafka was a German novelist who wrote in the early part of the twentieth century. He wrote many short stories and a few novels, many of which were not published in his lifetime. He most acclaimed novels by critics have been The Castle, The Trial and Amerika. Among his short stories, The Metamorphosis and In the Penal Colony have been given praise for originality.
