One of David Černý’s most beloved works, ‘Horse’ (Kůň), hangs from a ceiling in the Lucerna shopping passage, just off Wenceslas Square. Here, he’s placed one of the country’s patron saints, St Wenceslas, ludicrously astride an obviously dead horse. Černý is lampooning the country’s post-communist politics, but also poking fun at the pomposity of Josef Václav Myslbek’s statue of the same saint a few meters away at the top of the square.
