Photographer's Note

Hi, have a look at the spires.You will see 2 birds (raven ?) on them. I took also a close-up photo, which I will place tomorrow on TE. And then you may -I hope so - answer my questions: what does it mean? What kind of symbolism is it?
See You,
Peter

Matthias Church
This was the coronation church of Hungarian kings since King Matthias. The records of 1247 first mention this church as the main church of Buda Castle. The originally French building in early Gothic style has been consistently enlarged and rebuilt over the centuries. In 1526, when the Turks conquered Buda, the church was transformed into a mosque. After the reconquest of the city (1686) the church belonged to the Franciscans and later to the Jesuits. Between the years 1874 and 1896, Frigyes Schulek completely reconstructed the Church of Our Lady in the neo-Gothic style.(from BudaPortal)
