Mystery

-

My best friend Maja runs a shop. And the shop is in quite an old house. The space there is small, but really cute and comfy. And I love the way she stores things there. It is like in her own flat - there are thousands little things everywhere. For somebody it could look untidy or disordered, but the system in these things is obvious. Well, for me. As the place where I live looks the same in many ways.

When I first came there the thing I found the most interesting was this sculpture/engraving placed within one of the walls:


It is so nice. And notice the lower part which indicates that this "picture" is much bigger under the white coat of paint. I would like to know how big it is, and what other things could be found. But this is going to be a mystery forever as the building is not owned by Maja (she hires the place). And the owner wouldn´t be very happy if I let my investigative tendencies develop into something uncontrollable. What a pity...

When I was reading your comment about this "picture" my first thought was I want it. I'll buy it from your friends shop. I love this kind of thing. Then alas I find out it's attached to the wall. Bummer. I love the mystery behind it. I want it even more. The figure with his head in his hands intrigues me. If they ever pry this from the wall, please let me know.

Yes, it looks mysterious - and old. They don't make decorations like this anymore. I wonder who the violinist is???
