Sculpture by David Cerny's sculpture Next, we sought out one of Černý’s earlier works, Quo Vadis from 1990. The piece, a bronzed Trabant with four legs, commemorates the 4,000 East Germans who camped out in the gardens of the German Embassy in Prague before being granted permission to travel to West Germany in 1989. Many of the East Germans who traveled to West Germany left behind their Trabants, two-door sedans, produced by East German car manufacturer VEB
