Sculptor Kolodko’s New Figures Featuring Hungarian Dog Breeds Appear in Budapest


Guerrilla sculptor Mihály Kolodko, known for creating little figures of iconic characters in Hungarian culture, has just left his latest work in Budapest. The artist featured different dog breeds in his small sculptures this time, including Hungarian vizslas and pulis.

As We Love Budapest reports, to mark Children’s Day last weekend, celebrated urban sculptor Mihály Kolodko has turned his attention to Hungary’s favorite pet. The new collection is called Once Upon a Time There Was a Dog Fair in Buda which joins the pantheon of animals in Kolodko’s now extensive oeuvre. Previous examples include a squirrel involved in a crime to be solved by TV detective Columbo, a cartoon dragon, and an inept goat.

Once Upon a Time There Was a Dog Fair in Buda is the title of a Hungarian folk tale (usually a King Matthias tale) and the title of the cartoon that adapted it; as a sentence, it is a saying from a folk tale.

According to the story of the folktale, ‘at the intercession of the righteous King Matthias’, the poor man’s dogs are bought by the nobles at the Buda Fair for good money. Hearing this, the greedy rich man turns all his wealth into money, buys dogs with it, and goes to Buda with the pack of dogs. There, however, he is chased away while being told that “once upon a time there was a dog fair in Buda, only once.” The dogs run away and the rich man’s fortune is lost.

Kolodko’s new statues can be found in Budapest, where Batthyány street meets Hattyú street.
