In Hungary, his feast day (celebrated on 20 August) is also a public holiday commemorating the foundation of the state."

I was thinking Don Whatshisname [the one who tilts at windmills].

Je trouve que la statue a des proportions bizarres.

It's a fine piece of work. I especially like how his cloak has been depicted.

I like the way his gown is made.
He is presented as looking very sad.
The cloak on the statue is wondrous.
