Middle finger of the day: a finger for President Milos Zeman of The Czech Republic

By Mona Goldwater, Signs & Gestures Ed.

Another irregular appearing "finger of the day":  Czech artist David Cerny is sending a message to President Milos Zeman by floating a giant purple middle finger on the Vltava River pointed directly at Prague Castle. The BBC: 

"Cerny has shocked and mocked politicians and public figures in the past, says the BBC’s Rob Cameron."

"This latest piece is clearly his message to the leftist President Zeman and the political party recently set up by his supporters."

"Cerny himself declined to say too much about the piece, telling reporters the gesture spoke for itself - what mattered, he said, was which way it was pointing."
