Statue of Matthias Corvinus

Statue in Cluj-Napoca

Hogging the limelight in front of St Michael’s Church is a bulky 1902 statue of horseback Matthias Corvinus, the famous 15th-century Hungarian king.

Keen to work himself into the statue, the sculptor added his own face to one of the warriors by Matthias' side (the glowering chap on the far right).
