The Praha Cross

The Praha Cross

This is another photo from my trip to Prague in '05. This cross is embedded in the sidewalk outside the National Museum, at the top of Wenceslas Square. There was no plaque anywhere around I could see indicating an artist, and while there always seemed to be flowers there, after 7 days I never actually saw anyone leave any flowers. I snapped this shot from above, standing on the steps of the National Museum using a tripod and long exposure, after dark.

I left Prgaue unsure whether this was intended as public art, religious fervour, or some combination of the two. But regardless, i find myself drawn back to the picture time and time again.
