The Broken Arch: lost faith, broken promises. This large work can be seen standing on the northern side of the Houses of Parliament and is by Varga, Imre, one of Hungary`s foremost sculptors. It commemorates Karoly, Mihaly, first prime minister and president of the First - and short-lived - Hungarian Republic of 1918. It marks a very turbulent time in Hungary`s history.

Nagy Imre Memorial    A poignant reminder of 1956 and the failed revolution. Imre Nagy, the then Prime Minister, looks across the space that divides him from the Parliament of an Independent Hungary that he wouldn`t live to see.

I am also intrigued by the shadow cast on the pillar beside: how shapes are altered by the surface on which their shadows are cast; a metaphor for perception.
