Ignac Platzer's Battling Titans adorns the front gate of the Prague Castle. I imagine the message to visiting dignitaries was along the lines of: "Watch your manners or we will stomp you into the ground too." There is some truth behind my guesswork--the Czech ruling class has had a long and honored tradition of throwing people with contrary opinions out of windows and off of bridges.
