It´s the small details that make all the difference

I was walking around palermo and stopped abruptly to see this -and of course take the picture :) -. It's an absolutely normal house but with a tiny difference. The owner must have extreme good taste to embed this work of art into the front of his house. Take a closer look at the details! I guess they make this nice house into an extraordinary one.

Hi Cynthia,

I took a closer look. It looks like a few bed (death?) scenes with angels. It reminds me of some medieval art and sculptures. Can't really read the inscriptions - are they in Latin?

That's something you don't see every day! Very cool! I wonder what special meaning it has to the owner?

Nice picture! It's amazing how many things you can discover if you only pay a bit more attention. I experience this right now since I take my camera with me everywhere in case I might spot something interesting...

Thank you for your comments! Bob, in fact it´s latin and it must be a reproduction of medival art, a ressurection scene maybe...I really have to investigate this one, when I pass along that house again I´ll ask the owner.
