Great details in the statue

We came upon this by chance walking past Vajdahunyad Castle as there was a nice food market going on. The statue was very realistic. The details on the face were great.

This statue is found in the grounds of the Vajdahunyad Castle. It has to be the best statue I have seen because it is just so different. The hooded figure appears to have no face. I wouldn't want to come across it at night!

Very unusual statue, looking a bit weird, but draws a lot of attention. It is located in the middle of Hunyadi castle and represents the unknown writer of the first history of Hungarians. It is a great photo opportunity.

It's a nice statue to take pictures. Looks a little scary but it's different! You could find it out of the Agricultural Museum
