Statue of St. Elizabeth (Mád)

Daughter of Andrew II. king of Hungary and his wife Gertrude was helping the poor all time in her life. According to legend her cousin Henry did not approve of her good intentions and when Henry suprised her, he questioned and checked her – instead of bread he found roses. Then Henry shamed let her continue. Thus St. Elizabeth is represented with roses in fine arts. Respecting Elizabeth spread not only in our country but throughout Europe from 18th century. Robert Ekker sculptor used the famous mádi stone as a bachground for her relief.
