    Prague has quite a few abstract/contemporary statues isn’t it? I once saw (and read about) The Hanging Man and found it interesting. Franz Kafka is now added to me newly acquired art knowledge list 🙂 Great click too Indrani x

    The Metamorphosis, the English translation of his book. Can’t say it’s my favourite. The sculpture does capture Kafka’s ideas well 🙂
