A Brick Art
Location: Prague, Czech Republic
 
It’s a piece of art made out of blocks laid on top of each other.

It reminds me of a tower game where players take turns removing one block at a time and putting it on top resulting in a progressively taller but less stable structure. The winner is the last person to remove and place a block before it falls down and succumbs to the laws of gravity.

On a deeper level, it could be the artist’s way of paying homage to a city renowned for its magnificent architecture. Hey, before you wonder what I’d been smoking, let me remind you that blocks are an integral part of building construction.

If you love architecture, Prague is the best place to go. The best of European architecture, spared from the bombs of World War II, are well-preserved standing next to one another. Romanesque. Gothic. Renaissance. Baroque and Rococo. Classicism. Neo Renaissance. Art Noveau. Cubism. Socialist Realism. Post Modern. You name it. You’d find it in this beautiful city.

If you’re not into architecture, you can try the beer. It’s very good. Locals even have them for breakfast.
