The bronze relief of the coronation mantle
With several years of work, sculptor Tibor Rieger, recreated the almost 1000-year-old textile. His copper relief makes the spirit of King Saint Stephan’s royal court come to life.
The relief presents the depictions of the mantle in their entirety, extended in a semicircle. The semicircle-shaped bronze work of art (210 cm high and 434 cm diameter) is 1.5 times magnified compared to the original silk mantle. It authentically renders the lines of the original embroidery on the textile that are difficult to follow at some places.
