Facade art (1), bas reliefs (1)

Forgot where this is. Must be an official building because at the right there is the RF symbol, French Republic.

Rue St. Catherine, famous shopping street.

Another famous shopping street, Cours de l'Intendance, stewardship road.

Even in less important parts of the town you find beautiful facade art. Bordeaux has always been very rich because of the wine trade and the port.

You may find similar decorations in facades in other French towns, but never with the real living creatures touch as you find in Bordeaux.
