A Czech artist known for anti-communist-themed work designed a huge statue of a purple hand giving the middle finger that was floating along Prague’s Vltava river on Monday, right past the country’s Parliamentary buildings.
According to the Huffington Post, David Cerny‘s creation was placed on a pontoon and set adrift just a few days before the Czech Republic holds a parliamentary election that could put a communist regime in power for the first time in almost twenty five years.
The photo shows the hand in sight of the famed Charles Bridge and Prague Castle, where the nation’s president, Milos Zeman, resides.
Zeman reportedly supports an initiative from the center-left Social Democratic party to form a minority government that would indirectly put the brazen and increasingly-popular Communist party in control.
