1361 : Good King Wenceslas Last Hung Down

A short distance from Wenceslas Square in Prague is the wonderful Art Nouveau Lucerna Palace Arcade. Whilst the square boasts a monumental classical equestrian statue of King Wenceslas, the arcade has a suspended upside-down statue of the same King Wenceslas riding a dead horse. Give me the latter work - by the Czech sculptor David Cerny - any day.

Am I wrong to ask if that was a political statement or was it just for fun? I think that is the most unusual sculpture that I have ever seen.
