Brussels Photo: Friday, 15 September 2006

On our art nouveau visit, we came across this vase. Nothing unusual about this, you say. However, the history and details of this vase are what ... well, shock.

Not only does the vase display erotic images. It was also built by the Francmasons where a church used to stand (St. Servais). That's urban history for you :) The vase was created by Godefroid Devresse in 1911 and it's called 'Vase Monumental'.

As I am abroad for the weekend, Denton came to the rescue again. Go visit him on Greenville DP.
