And in the shadowless unclouded glare
Deep blue above us fades to whiteness
Where a misty sea-line meets the wash of air

Anonymus (Anonymous) by Miklós Ligeti, monument to an anonymous early historian of the Magyars, Városliget, Budapest

Budapest, September 1994

“The most famous statue however is the statue of a monk, sculpted in 1903 by Miklós Ligeti. Very little is known about this monk whose name is even unknown, so he is now referred to as Anonymus (Latin for anonymous). This mysterious monk lived in the 12th century as the notary of King Béla III. He is credited as the writer of the first book of the history of the Hungarians, the ‘Gesta Hungarorum’. Touching the monk's stylus is supposed to bring good luck with your studies.”
