Another piece by David Cerny, I think by now you can really see his style. This piece consists of several sculptures depicting babies, which are 350 cm long and 260 cm high. Their faces are replaced with bar code stamps. These babies used to be in another building in Prague ( Zizkov Tower but for some reason, they were removed)

If you’re near the TV tower in the Žižkov area, look up and you’ll see giant babies crawling up the side of the tower. Yes, that’s another David Černý masterpiece.

"Babies" Sculpture by David Cerný Guides
- reinacartagena (Reina Cartagena ) If you decide to go for a walk around Prague you'll end up finding one of these weird and unusual sculptures around the city. Most of them done by famous artist David Cerny! So get ready to be surprised.
- travelfreak (Jeremy Foster) You’ll only spend a few hours in beautiful Prague before you realize that the fairytale city isn’t just about perfectly preserved Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque architecture. Beneath that pretty surface is a quirky, tongue-in-cheek, politically-charged art scene with some unforgettable pieces scattered around the city. Local artist David Černý is one of the most noteworthy appearances on this list, as his edgy (and often controversial) pieces are renowned around the world. But there’s a lot more to discover too, from colorful street art to eerie statues to graffiti-covered walls. Some are found close to other historic highlights; others will take a little more work to find. That’s half the fun!
