On a different note, one of my visitors, Istvan has taken the liberty to find more info. on these statues. His friend helped to confirm the background and existence of the 'pick and shovel men' (kubikusok). To those who are interested, you can now read about it at the sidebar. (<<) .
Feedback/assistance such as this definitely makes maintaining this blog more worth while. Köszönöm Szépen Istvan and Andras!
