Anthropomorphic Buildings

The New York Times article yesterday about JR and the faces he paints on buildings made me think about buildings I have seen with faces. Sometimes they are very literal like the chimney pots on Antonio Gaudi's Casa Mila' that look like sentinels protecting the apartment building.Another favorite is the garden of fantastical characters at Bomarzo.

My favorites are the ones that are created by the arrangement of the doors and windows. This garage has eyelashes, a nose and two pig tailsThis building seems to be saying "Woe is Me!"

This corner tower is perpetually surprised.

One of my favorites is this building in Innsbruck

Please send me buildings that you see with faces....I would love to add them the my collection!
