The Wall that John Built

May 30, 2011

These photos aren’t exactly religious in nature, but they’ll give you something to think about. All of these were taken at the John Lennon Wall in Prague.

Basically the populace used this wall to speak out against the Communist regime in the 1980s and every time the artwork was snuffed out by Communist officials, they started again.  I have no idea how many times this wall has been painted but I’m sure in a month it will look quite different.

This is, without a doubt, the coolest thing I’ve seen in Prague. The seemingly homeless man directing traffic, the marionette opera and the sex machine museum are a close second, third and fourth.
