Franz Kafka (1883-1924)

Franz Kafka Statue - Prague
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.
