The tank once stood in Smíchov to commemorate the liberation of Prague by the Red Army in WWII. In 1991, a 23-year old student of Academy of Arts, David Černý turned it in a large candy by painting it pink. After returning it to the original state, a group of deputies of Czech Federal Assembly painted the tank pink again.
