A lost competition art piece has turned up

We paid a visit to Ms. Zsuzsa Zilahy who posed for Nándor Wagner as a child. She told us stories about the atelier and life in the Royal Garden Pavilion (Várbazár), where more than a dozen sculptors were creating. She and her family were presented several pieces by Nándor among them was the competition piece for the relief at the entrance of Eger Castle in 1952. The plaster piece was broken, but it is valuable so we have restored and preserved it.
