Jan Hus monument

  Wenceslas square     more than a year ago
Czech sculptors are known for occasionally pushing boundaries, but the monumental memorial to Jan Hus on Old Town Square is a marvel to both art nouveau and symbolism. The stone and bronze work by Ladislav Šaloun was unveiled in 1915 and shows Hus, a religious leader and martyr, above a burning stake, which is how he met his death. The plaque in front is a quote from Hus and says “Love each other and wish the truth to everyone.”
