New statue unveiled at grave of actor Vlasta Burian

A new statue dedicated to legendary Czech comic actor Vlasta Burian has been unveiled at his grave in Prague's Vysehrad cemetery. Several dozen people attended the unveiling ceremony to mark the 45th anniversary of the actor's death, including the head of the National Theatre's ballet section Vlastimil Harapes and actors Lubomir Lipsky and Marta Vancurova. The statue made by Tomas Vejdovsky consists of a hand making a dramatic gesture. It replaces a bust of Burian, which was stolen from the actor's grave five years ago.
