As luck would have it, we're scheduled to install quite a few of them on MoM headquarters this year!

Seriously though, great find Hans, thanks for sharing!

Great find, wonderful picture - but it's not on my wishlist in this earthquake-prone country.

Perhaps inside, Vyon, made of plaster?

Cheryl - if you're renovating MoM HQ, could we have the staircase too?

Lily, I thought they started on the staircase last year. I guess we need someone on site at HQ to make sure the contractors are working!

The contractors are on strike until they get daily rations of klah and bubbly pies.

Fantastic looking balcony Hans...for us it wouldn't work, as we only have one story on our home...but it would make an extremely beautiful bird bath in our yard!!!

Love that idea Maelin. Do you think the dragon face would scare away birds trying to get at the upturned wings full of water???
