Clues #midnighthaiku

Meanings and symbols

Arcane stories set in stone

Barefaced mysteries

Scattered clues to tantalise

Or was the artist laughing..

      So mny of these carvings can only be ‘in’ jokes, or caricatures… and we walk past them every day, without seeing them or realising how may stories are around us. This picture was just above a doorway in Oxford.

    Many older apartment buildings in the city have these too (they would never place such beauty on a building now). They always make me smile. (K)
