Artist's Description

“Franz Kafka Statue – Prague” was featured in the groups Statues and Such and “Public Art”.

Bubble Jeopardy “Where is it?” question was solved by Umbra101!! – Photo taken in Prague, Czech Republic.

This interesting bronze statue by sculptor Jaroslav Rona is based on a vivid description that appears in Franz Kafka‘s early short story “Description of a Struggle.” Kafka wrote of a young man riding on another man’s shoulders through the streets of Prague. In Rona’s work, that figure is Kafka himself sitting astride a headless man.

This statue was unveiled in December 2003. It stands next to the Spanish Synagogue in Prague’s Jewish Quarter.

Franz Kafka (IPA: [ˈfʀanʦ ˈkafka]) (3 July 1883 – 3 June 1924) was one of the major fiction writers of the 20th century. He was born to a middle-class German-speaking Jewish family in Prague, Austria-Hungary, presently the Czech Republic. His unique body of writing—much of which is incomplete and which was mainly published posthumously—is considered by some people to be among the most influential in Western literature.

His stories, such as The Metamorphosis (1915), and novels, including The Trial (1925) and The Castle (1926), concern troubled individuals in a nightmarishly impersonal and bureaucratic world.
