The Eagle

Tatabánya

And we have finally arrived at the end of the trip. It only lasted about 3 weeks in real time and about 3 months in photos time. For the last shot, I thought I’d show you the eagle from Tatabanya, in Hungary, or the „Turul” as it’s also called. The statue can be easily seen from the motorway, and it represents the most important bird in Hungarian mythology – the eagle. It is a divine messenger, and perches on top of the tree of life along with the other spirits of unborn children in the form of birds. There were three statues like this in Hungary, each with a wingspan of 15 meters, but, this is the only one left. The other two were destroyed. Also, this is the largest bird statue in Central Europe.
