Franz Kafka inspired this mirrored 45-ton kinetic sculpture in Prague

They say that cool heads prevail. But what about big heads that move? Like this massive replica of Franz Kafka’s noggin in Prague.

The moving sculpture is located in the middle of a busy shopping complex in Prague. The shiny, chrome replica of writer Franz Kafka’s head is the latest work by Czech artist David Cerny and was installed in 2014. The mirrored piece is comprised of 42 layers of independently moving stainless less slices and weigh in at 45 tons altogether. The piece was inspired by Kafka’s tortured personality and the problems he faced throughout his life. Watch the video below to see the sculpture move.
