House shrine

photo by Fio
This is an old house in Ostropa - one of many traces of the past in the agricultural district of our city. Pay attention to a tiny shrine under a roof finial. It has to protect the house and family members.

Lovely brickwork, notably around the tiny shrine. We have many of these here, but usually are intended for 'public' use.

It is lovely how they decorated the building in the brickworks.

The old brickwork is so beautiful and I especially like the occasional green brick around the shrine! It's lovely!

Dlaczego mam płacić atencji, skoro umieszczasz cel zdjęcia prawie dokładnie w centrum :-P :D
(Też bywają, choć dla mnie ciekawostka -- pobliski budynek nosi ślad po byłej kapliczce, ale samej już nie posiada.)

PS.
Przepraszam, ale ostatnio mam taką głupawkę, że wszystko tłumaczę 'fonetycznie' :)

Excellent photo of a fascinating building. Magic lives on!

Beautiful. I think I've seen similar things in old houses here (although I'm more used to see little grottos).

Greetings from Santiago.
