Sculpture artist Anna Chromy’s “Il Commendatore,” or “Cloak of Conscience,” sits outside of the historic Estates Theatre in Prague. Though the sculpture was created as a symbol for hope and peace, it’s allegedly haunted: visitors have claimed faces in the figure’s empty cloak have appeared in photos that have used flash photography.
