Shadow of the Giant, Prague, Czech Republic

A silhouette of one of the two giants at the Hradčany in Praha, Česká Republika. The base of this giant seems to be marked "A. Procházka 1902" which may refer to the artist Antonín Procházka.

 

The giants stand atop an entrance gate with a Rococo grill that separates the Castle's first courtyard (the "První hradní nádvoří") from Hradčanské náměstí (Castle Square). The fighting giants stand directly above the Castle guards.
