Gábor Benő Pogány: Gate guard
(2013, Handshake Europe Sculpture Park)
Pogány’s “Gate guard” takes care of the entrance to the otherworld. It draws attention to itself with its unified, well-cohesive mass and the confidence of the sculptor’s anatomical knowledge (Veszeli Lajos 2013, Pannon Tükör 18(6)).
The original sculpture was made in 1985 in Szolnok. The one in Balatonalmádi is a painted polyester fiberglass. The bronze casting of the sculpture is in progress (2021).
