Franz Kafka (1883-1924)

This interesting metal statue by sculptor Jaroslav Rona is based on a vivid description that appears in Franz Kafka's early short story "Description of a Struggle." Kafka wrote of a young man riding on another man's shoulders through the streets of Prague. In Rona's work, that figure is Kafka himself sitting astride a headless man.

Саша! Думаю, что ответ на этот вопрос надо искать не столько у Ярослава Роны, сколько у самого Кафки! Спасибо тебе и Богдану!
