Falling Down

One of the many statues in Budapest, and a very unorthodox one as well. The Hungarians obviously like these sometimes strange statues as they are put up everywhere you look. This one is on the stairs leading down from the Fisherman's Bastion and depicts a man falling down. It's a monument to honour Peter Mansfeld, a Hungarian freedom fighter of the 1956 uprising who was executed by the authorities in 1959 at the age of only 18.
