Art in miniature

Budapest has a few interesting mini statues, all made by the same Ukrainian sculptor, Mikhailo Kolodko (see: minitank, mini Kermit). Just last week, another statue appeared: the statue of a bearded figure with a bicycle. The statue features Theodore Herzl (1860-1904), founder of the Zionist movement, a Hungarian Jew. His birthplace was next to the Great Synagogue, this is why the statue is so close to it, on a lamp post in front of the Synagogue. Try to find it!
