Heavy Metal is an American science fiction and fantasy comics magazine, known primarily for its blend of dark fantasy/science fiction and erotica and steampunk comics.
In the mid-1970s, while publisher Leonard Mogel was in Paris to jump-start the French edition of National Lampoon, he discovered the French science-fantasy magazine Métal Hurlant which had debuted January 1975.
When Mogel licensed the American version, he chose to rename it, and Heavy Metal began in the U.S. in April 1977 as a glossy, full-color monthly. Initially, it displayed translations of graphic stories originally published in Métal Hurlant, including work by Enki Bilal, Philippe Caza, Guido Crepax, Philippe Druillet, Jean-Claude Forest, Jean Giraud (a.k.a. Moebius), Chantal Montellier, and Milo Manara. [Wikipedia]

The reason being that Florian was a Roman soldier (and secret Christian) who commanded a firefighting brigade. When his superiors found out about his Christian beliefs he was sentenced to be burned at the stake. Florian told the executioners he wasn’t afraid of fire, so they drowned him instead. So the moral of the story is...err... m
I’m not sure if there was a fire in this area that was commemorated, or if the Fire Station was nearby, but this sculpture is one of those fascinating holdovers from another time that permeate Budapest. I love this city’s weirdness.
Margit Kovács was the artist. ...
I have no information about this bust, which stands in the courtyard of the Association of Hungarian Architects.
The building is - as you might expect - stunning, with its hanging vines and vibrant colours. Any info about the sculpture would be gladly accepted. ...
