Prague Main Library Book Sculpture

Not so much a statue per se, but when they remodeled the main library, this nice sculpture made entirely of stacked books was added to the main entrance. It’s quite cool, and though not a supporting structure, it certainly seems like it could be.

Not sure what that gaping hole, that gash, that “book taco” if you will, is, but It also has mirrors in its hollow interior at both top and bottom, giving it the illusion of extending to infinity when you stick your head in and look at it from the inside. A common feeling when reading.
