Saint John of Nepomuk

Statue of Saint John of Nepomuk in Windischgarten, Austria

This statue of Saint John of Nepomuk stands at a building named Ehemschiedhaus. The building dates back to the 13th century. The sculpture saw its completion in the first half of the 18th century. I love the levitating angel above his head.


A pair of griffins in Vienna

A pair of griffins in Vienna, Austria

A pair of griffins seen at a bollard in the historicist Vienna Ring Road (Wiener Ringstraße). Though I don’t believe in fabulous creatures I always love to come across depictions of them on my urban walks. In Rostock, you can even see them on manhole covers.
