(SZENT ISTVçN MEGKORONçZçSA), ESZTERGOM
Sttoý limestone statue standing near the Basilica on the castle's round bastion. Mikls Melocco's nearly 12 metre-high work immortalises the moment when the crown is placed on the King's head.
The twice life size figures and the arched stone ribs forming the frame are connected by a Cross. The composition shows coronation: the placing of the crown on the King's head.ÊThe formation suggests King Stephen's Admonitions to his son Prince EmericÊ(Imre herceg): Nothing raises you but humility...
The two-figure statue group was unveiled on the anniversary of St Stephen'sÊdeath on the 15th August 2001.
