Mysterious faces

photo by Prado
Well... this is neither a theatre nor my home :-)
This is one of the most beautiful tenements in our city, situated in the corner of Częstochowska and Gorzołki streets.
As we see, our puzzle was too difficult to solve. You need to crane your neck more often, dear "gliwiczanie"!

As Prado has just told you, unfortunately nobody knows whos face was the inspiration for the artist. Maybe she was his lover? Maybe it was simply a ready pattern from decorator's manual? There are still many unrevealed secrets hidden behind the facades of tenements in our city.

Fabulous picture by Prado!
I liked a lot this idea to show us details and then the whole subject!
You are right, we need to crane our neck more often to see beautiful buildings and wowww what a wonderful sky there!

It does look like a gorgeous apartment building. I like the pretty faces at the corners, but I'm not sure about the small one in the middle!

What a delightful building. What a terrific photo. Are those flowers in the window on the top floor?

Beautiful building and funny idea for a riddle...

Obawiam się, że nie znam.
Z rogu wyglądają lepiej niż na wprost fasady.
Co do spekulacji -- z tego może wyjść całkiem romansowa historia. A może ktoś miał tylko słabość do takiego przeestetyzowania?

Byłam przekonana, że to teatr :) dopóki nie poszukałam zdjęć gliwickiego teatru..
Przepięknie odnowiona kamienica!
