On the southern walls of Buda Castle a four meter high statue has been erected depicting Virgin Mary and the child Jesus.
The bronze statue’s scaled-down version, a man-sized replica of it can be seen in the Castle Gallery made by sculptor László Mátyássy. The artwork is very different from other Virgin Mary statues found in Hungary. It depicts Mary and the child Jesus, but the child is hovering in front of his mother’s body, so depicting the mystery and the wonder of the immaculate conception.
