More Academic Grotesques

IMG_5026Look at all these charming little faces! A chorus of grotesques holds up a window sill on this pretty stone academic building. These photos were taken by my little sister munchkin, Amira M., who says she passes them on her way to English class. In the photo below, you can see that the window is also surrounded by beautifully foliate interlace patterns and Corinthian columns. I must admit that I am quite intrigued by the one plain capital; I wonder if there is some story behind that. The building looks so pretty in the snow, too.

Thanks Amira!
