Art reflecting in art gallery window-reflection photos

Weekend again and that means reflection photos for James.
On sunny days reflections are so clear and captivating.
On the reflection in the window of this small art gallery, under that scaffold is hidden the statue of Matthias Corvinus (1443- 1490).
King Matthias (Matyas Kiraly in Hungarian) was born in my town and he was King of Hungary from 1458 to his death.
After conducting several military campaigns he became also King of Bohemia, (1469-1490) and Duke of Austria. He was the most popular of all Hungarian Kings,educated, wise, patient, brave and most of all, just. That is why has was also called Matthias Rex (Latin for just), on the memorial plate of the statue .

The statue is in restoration for such a long time, more than 10 years, that I had to borrow this free photo from Wikipedia.

I like looking at the window. There are interesting things inside and outside from the great reflection. I also like the bottom picture with the beautiful sky.

Good morninig!
Beautiful photo, I love the reflections you capture.
I also learned that "Kiraly" means king? Very interesting, because I know a guy whose last name is Kiraly. He must have Romanian ancestry! I will impress him by telling him I know what his last name means :-)
