Message from Peter Toth:

"St Stephan, King of Hungary: June 2008, I finished statue #73. This is a very important statue to me, as it is my first one on the European Continent. St Stephan was the first King of Hungary, around 1000 AD, and he introduced Christianity to the country. If not for him, there would be no Hungary today." It is located about 20 miles from Budapest, in the town of Delegyhaza. It is in a Park dedicated to King Stephan, adjacent to the Post Office."

At this time in my life, I have completed my tributes to the indigenous people of North America, specifically the Native Americans. It is now my calling to provide memorials to the indigenous people of the World. Presently I am engaged in creating replacement statues in various States as well as reconditioning others. However, the World will still remain in my plans for the future.

Sadly this statue has been removed by the Zoo administration. It suffered wood rot and the base deteriorated, making it unsafe. They deemed it too costly to repair.
