What does the sculpture infront of the museum represent?
Our tour guide told us that it represented the past ignoring of the history of the Czech Republic. The Russians / Communists are the obvious offenders but there seem to be many others over the centuries up to the present.
Called Proudy, the peeing statues made of bronze were finished in 2004 by David Černý. According to Černý, the status were standing and pissing on Czech Republic itself. (Note the shape of the basin.) The artist said that Proudy does trace out Czech quotes with their pee.
The sculpture in front of the Kafka museum is typical of the humour of Franz Kafka. He wanted to use technology and art to make people laugh. I saw a lot of people laughing as they watched the statues. If you read a little of the writings of Franz Kafka you will be able to appreciate his humour better. I hope this is a helpful explanation.
Kafka had an interesting perspective in terms of ideas. Sometimes out of the ordinary. This was a prime example of this. The statues denote his particular sense of humor. Very much different for his time.
