Description

Bronze sculpture of a little girl with a paper crown, sitting on a railing.

Inscription(s)

KISKIRÁLYLÁNY

marton lászló 1989

Annotation

The artist was inspired by his daughter évike, who played in a princess costume made ??by her father, with a crown made of a newspaper on her head, and a bathrobe as a mantle.

The original sculpture dates from 1972 and was much smaller. It was in 1989 replaced by the present larger sculpture. An identical sculpture is in Tapolca and in Tokyo at the Metropolitan Art Space centre. The original 1972 small sculpture is in the National Gallery.

Most tourists thinks the statue represents a boy - we heard the city guide asking his tourists "Is it a boy or a girl"? Most thought it was a boy. (That is the reason that this statue has on our site also the keyword "Boy (sitting)").
