Renovation of the Kossuth Satue is in progress on schedule
Under the guidance of Mr. Lajos Győrfi, sculptor from Püspökladány township, Kossuth’s statue, the gem and pride of Debrecen’s main square is being renovated. The operation started with dismandling the statue on May 7, 2018 and the rebuilding of the pedestal is presently underway.
Although the very rainy weather conditions in the past few days kept work back to some extent, the contractors pledge to have it accomplished meeting the final deadline, that is, August 19 – the weather permitting – or even a few days before that deadline. The individual figures of the sculptural group are to be shipped to the site on August 7 and mounting them on the pedestral will take place in the course of that same week. The artistic work on the renovation of the main sculptural figure has already been accomplished by the artist, only minor jobs are still to be finished on the two secondary lower sculptural groups.
