Those are great and slightly comical/irreligious. Love them.

When interpreted in their mythical way they actually add a religious aspect to this non religious monument. White storks are believed to be bringers of new life. Many villages in Hungary (and Slovakia, and probably in the countries around) try to have at least one pair of storks around smile

Very interesting. I've never heard that before. Maybe that is part of why we have the myth of the stork as the bringer of babies.

Same myth. Babies are new life smile And the deeper meaning of war monuments like these is often that by offering lifes new life for the country (or for others) comes into existance.
