Charles Bridge / Prague, Czech Republic
There are 30 statues mounted to the balustrade of Charles Bridge in Prague. Most sculptures were erected between 1683 and 1714 and depict various saints and patron saints. Beginning in 1965, all of the statues have been systematically replaced by replicas and the originals have been exhibited in the lapidarium of the National Museum. I'm not very good at saint cognizance so I have no idea who this is.
