"Party at Fisherman's Bastion" (2020)
Watercolor, ink and color pencil on watercolor paper, 11.7 x 8.3 in.
In June 2019, I visited Budapest for the first time, and one of the most visually inspiring sights was the Fisherman’s Bastion. During medieval times, there used to be thick castle walls here, meant to protect the Buda castle and the city atop Castle Hill from numerous sieges then. Some historians believe that this segment of the walls was protected by the guild of fishermen who lived under the walls and sold their fish at the fish market up in the castle.
The Bastion was constructed at the turn of the 20th century as a communal panorama terrace for locals to enjoy the view. Its fairy-tale-like look is meant to invoke a romantic recall of the old times, and “feel like history”. As I explored the walls and lookout towers, I imagined the Bastion to be a place where residents of Castle Hill gathered to celebrate special occasions during times of peace. Thus this illustration celebrates the love and joy of a community who support and care for one another.
