Giant Floating Hand Flips The Bird At Czech Government
One artist public shares his thoughts about politics, and gives the ruling power his two cents.
Art has always been a medium of expression, allowing people to voice their thoughts, morals, and everything in between. Furious with his country’s politics, Czech sculptor David Cerny turned his thoughts into a public art installation, which currently floats on the Vltava River in front of the Prague Castle.
The 30-foot-high, plastic purple hand with a giant raised middle finger is a satirical piece meant to criticize the country’s ongoing political corruption and power-hunger politicians.
