14th Century Church Fresco Uncovered In Budapest
"Pest Downtown Church parish priest Zoltán Osztie and archaeologist Imre Bodor presented a rediscovered Middle Ages fresco to the media on Thursday.

The fresco, which portrays the infant Jesus and the Virgin Mary, was uncovered on a sanctum wall behind the main altar of the Március 15 tér church in the midst of preparations for a repainting project in the summer.

The style and theme of the fresco suggests the early 14th Century, art restorer Éva Derdák said."
