Photographer's Note

This is a collage of three sculptures of the recently deceased renown sculptor Imre Varga (1923 - 2019). He made these sculptures for the St.Gerald Roman Catholic church, which is in the 11th district of Budapest, built between 1984 and 1992, designed by Andras Kiss. A picture of the Church is shown in the Workshop.

- The marble sculpture on the top is called "Pieta" it is inside a chapel of the church, made in 2001. It is unusual, because the body of Jesus is shown laying on a stone covered by a sheet, and not on the lap of his mother.

- St. Gerald statue, 1997. Gerald (Gellért) was a Venetian monk, but served as the Bishop of Csanad County in Hungary when he was killed in Buda in 1046 by Magyar rebels. The statue depicts the martyr bishop being pulled out of the river Danube by an angel. The statue is on the wall of the church facing the street.

- Pope Sylvester II statue, 2001. Pope Sylvester gave a crown to King Stephen in the year 1000, after he decided to convert his nation to the Roman Catholic faith. The crown is shown in the left hand of the Pope. The statue is beside the bell tower.
