Szekely Gate

The central feature of the Hungarian Cultural Garden is a wrought-iron gate, based on the Szekely Kapu in eastern Hungary. Usually, such gates are constructed of wood and decorated with brightly colored paint; the wrought-iron variation in the Hungarian Garden reflects the Cleveland context with its industrial orientation and craft traditions of Cleveland. In fact, one of the nation's leading wrought iron craftsmen (though not the artist who forged the gate) Martin Rose - founder of Rose Iron Works - was born in Hungary.
