Another project David Cerny - Two Peeing Guys (Sculpture)

Over Charles Bridge, the Franz Kafka museum immediately to the right (Cihelná 2b) harbours one of Cerny's most humorous creations. Affectionately titled "Piss". The idea is disarmingly simple. Two bronze sculptures pee into their oddly-shaped enclosure , actually it’s the shape of the Czech Republic.
While they are peeing, the two figures move realistically. An electric mechanism driven by a couple of microprocessors swivels the upper part of the body, while the penis goes up and down. The stream of water writes quotes from famous Prague residents.

It used to be that you could write what they peed but I guess the message couldn't be more controversial than the subject.
