Thursday’s Special

Paula’s (Lost in Translation) challenge this week is Life Size


Other public artworks by Černý that are worth seeking out are his statues of babies. Three of these large statues are at the entrance to the Museum Kampa, and more are on the TV tower in Žižkov. The large, crawling rugrats have disturbing machine-like slots on their faces. These Babies are part of Černý’s project to make the Žižkov TV Tower more beautiful, as it has been named one of the world’s most ugly buildings. A swarm of the mutant babies crawls on the tower’s exterior. At night they are lit up in the colours of the Czech flag.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. What a lovely shiny bottom Jude. And I went to the source, oh my some of those sculptures are quite disturbing especially the horse hanging upside down. But I thought the babies crawling up the tower looked cute. Then I looked at the video. Did you watch it? It had me laughing out loud. I even called Jack over to watch it…. Thanks Jude I loved this post and what it took me to.
