The focus of Baranyay’s interest as an artist was the human body: in his numerous self-portraits and hand depictions he used his own body, while the bodies of his friends allowed him to observe the forms different from his own body in his series The Married Couple, Pictures of Backs, Handshakes and The Márffy Girls.
The Romans were the first to produce brick in the territory of Hungary. The name 'tégla' also originates from the Latin word "tegula". The first brick marks were also inherited from the Romans - they stamped the legion number into the still wet product, that is, they draw a circle, a cross or other symbols made up of simple forms. It was a frequent occurrence during the drying of the clay products that house animals ran across them: thus, we also inherited a number of dog and cat footprints from the Roman age on some beautiful pieces.
