Description

Chinese conceptual artist and political activist Ai Weiwei, 59, has prepared his so far biggest work of art, a giant refugee boat entitled "The Law of the Journey," for the National Gallery (NG) in the grand hall of the NG premises in the Veletrzni palace in Prague, today on Wednesday, March 15, 2017. A 70-metre-long inflatable boat with above life-size figures of 258 refugees of some dark material will hang in the air in the hall, accompanied by a big glass ball in which the artifact will br reflected. NG says this is the culmination of the artist's interest in the global refugee crisis. (CTK Photo/Roman Vondrous)
