Monument of František Palacký

The František Palacký Monument in Prague features emotive figurative sculptures waging a battle between heaven and hell. On the massive Art Nouveau statuary you can see not only the seated figure of Palacký, but also a two-headed winged demon with its victims and a beautiful fallen female angel. The creator of this monument is Stanislav Suchard, Czech sculptor and professor at the Prague School of Applied Arts from 1899, and a leading figure in the Mánes Union of Fine Arts.

The giant monument is situated on the square bearing the same name as the statue (Plackeho Square).
