Figures of the Kossuth sculptural group are back in Debrecen
The pride and gem of Debrecen’s main square, the sculptural group of Kossuth have been renovated under the supervision of sculptor artist, Mr. Lajos Győrfi of Püspökladány township, the individual figures of the group were shipped back to Debrecen’s main square, the Kossuth square, on August 07.
The figures of the sculptural group are going to be erected within a week. Renovation work had become necessary because the elements of the inner brick core support of the pedestal had got loosened since its renovation performed in year 2001, and therefore, some of the lime-stone blocks of the pedestal had got sunk in and even some bronze statues have also suffered some damage, and have slid from their positions. The operations started with the dismantling of the sculptural group on May 07, 2018, while, at present, the last bits of the pedestal are being fitted in place. Restoration operations are personally supervised by sculptor artist, Mr. Lajos Győrfi. Shipment of sculptural group took place on August 07. Mounting the figures onto the pedestal is planned to take place within a week and thus the final deadline of August 19 is likely to be met.
