Garden of Cast Offs

There's a peculiar garden on the corner of Munkácsy Mihály & Kmety in the 6th district. Perhaps it's known to most people but I only discovered it when I went to an appointment in the neighbourhood, turned up early and had some time to kill.

The large house seems to play home to an art school specializing in sculptures. The area around the building is scattered with discarded statues either unfinished or unwanted.

The scene makes for a bizzare vision with thin stick figures, fat naked ladies. From subjects waiting at a bus stop to broken kings resting in the ruins.

It's been a while since I was there and took these photos but if you're in the area I highly recommend a small detour to see what's recently been given the chop and thrown to the elements.
