Previous Cerny hits including punking the E.U., putting dinosaur legs on a Trabant, painting a Soviet tank memorial pink, affixing giant crawling black babies to a television tower, letting visitors crawl up the giant ass of a sculpted Vaclav Klaus, and so on. You can see a good sampler here, or at his website.
