Warsaw ornamentation: 1

7 Feb

 

This is the culprit! Little did I think as I hobbled up ul Długa en route to the physiotherapist that I was entering dangerous photographic territory when I snapped this rather nondescript design on a gateway. Like all addictions it began harmlessly enough, just one fix, and then maybe another. Soon, it seemed, I was stripping such ornamentation from every building in Warsaw.

    The first decoration is strangely human – hair flopping over forehead, bulbous nose, moustache, beard. What do you think?

      Don’t get me started! I can see what you mean and I could well set off in search of images called something like “The human face in decoration”!
