Sculptor from Hamilton reunited with his statue stolen from his front lawn

(10/02/04) HAMILTON - A Mercer County artist has been reunited with a statue he created that was stolen about a month ago.

Scultpor Gyuri Hollosy's statue of Eos, the Greek Goddess of Dawn, was his first major work in metal. It was stolen off his front lawn. But police recently found the 6-foot, 650-pound statue mostly intact behind a train station in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

Hollosy, has a studio at Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, was not going to press charges if Eos was returned. But he says all bets are off now because the statue was just dumped. Hollosy says he wants a good explanation of why the thieves stole his artwork.

Hollosy claims just days before Eos was found, there were reports that someone was trying to sell her at a flea market in Bucks County. Hollosy claims his statue is worth about $20,000.
