Who's that girl?

Today a puzzle for our visitors from Gliwice!
Guess where is a tenement decorated with this mysterious face.

Trochę trudne dla kogoś, kto nigdy w Gliwicach nie był ;) Mam pewne podejrzenia, a na trop naprowadziła mnie grecka antyczna maska teatralna, która znajduje się pod gzymsem. Oczywiście pewności nie mam, tak sobie zgaduję. Ale ja poza konkursem, niech zagraniczni goście się postarają :)

I have no idea who she is but she is beautiful. I guess it's an ancient (Greek) goodness. Afrodite?

A happy face, I do not know the things behind this face as I am an Indian...

Amazing work.

This beautiful tenement comes from 1909, and is one of the best examples of Seccesion style in architecture in the city. Unfortunately, the woman's face must remain mysterious, (unless somebody really knows her identity, but I doubt....)

Przyjemna dziołcha:)

There are more beautiful women on the building, aren't there?

Hilda said...

That's fascinating. And I think she's beautiful!

She has a ladder in her hair! It looks like a theater...

prado said...

Well, as this isn't a theatre, maybe this woman is a muse, Melpomene? That would explain that ladder in her hair and the tragic masks nearby? Besides, ancient motifs were common in eclectic architecture...
