In necessariis unitas - in dubiis libertas - in omnibus caritas

This work stands on the Hungarian side of the border with Austria. When the iron curtain was first opened at the "Pan European Picnic", an event chaired by my father, hundreds of refugees gained their freedom. In this work the barbed wire forms a cross that points to all directions and unites people.
