UNKNOWN GOLDSMITH, Hungarian
(active 1400-1425)

Herma of Saint László, King of Hungary

The herma, containing the head relic of Saint László, King of Hungary, was made in the first quarter of the 15th century to substitute that which had been destroyed before 1405. By some experts it is attributed to Márton Kolozsvári, the older sculptor of the Kolozsvári brothers.
