My daughter took this photo on a trip to Spain.
In America, in front of the McMansions, it is not atypical to see interesting statues (perhaps of lions or fantasy guard creatures), ancient fountains, and even modern art.
I thought this European house was unique with some busts of a man and woman on each side of the gate to the front door.
Wonder whether these are actually supposed to look the owners or are just randomly funny.
Also, the color match the orange house and yellow entranceway sort of perfectly.
Either way, it makes you take a 2nd and 3rd look.
Why is the man bust smiling and the woman bust looking so miserable here (or is that just representative of what most "traditional" marriages are about)?
Wouldn't it be sort of funny if every home had busts or large photos or other representation prominently and widely displayed of the family inside.
No more mystery of who lives there and more warmth and personalization.
When you sell/buy property, you just have to take all of yourselves with you. ;-)
