“Who are the ladies waiting for?”

Waiting statue group
Ranked #334 of 545 things to do in Budapest
Reviewed January 11, 2018

Imre Varga, the famous Hungarian sculptor, made this group of girls remembering his years in Paris. There he has seen street girls standing in the rain, and waiting for clients.
The same statues, only with two girls were erected in one of the public squares in Los Angeles. These ladies are waiting here desperately from 1986. They're everything just not cheerful. The visitors hook on them for the mood of a selfie, but these girls are sad and vulnerable. During the summer they are standing in a flower bed, but now, at the beginning of January, when I took the photo, the surroundings were suited to their mood. A few blocks from the "Umbrella carriers" - as everyone calls them-, on the 7th of Laktanya Street, Imre Varga's permanent exhibition is open to the public.
