Czech artist David Cerny sends a powerful message to his country’s president on Monday with a giant purple hand making an obscene gesture floating on Prague’s Vltava river. Cerny’s gesture comes days before parliamentary elections that could give the communists a taste of power almost 25 years since they were ousted.
