In the XI century, some artists carved Leyre’s monastery’s door in Navarre and filled the Romanic arch with fantastic animals. I searched in my archives and found two of them, the head of a bear and an eagle. It’s a primitive art exciting. The arch tells its figures the story of two siblings who became saints in the middle age after many adventures.
After this historic stone animals let’s see what I can find at home
I have also pictures of some interesting animals on the streets:

I so adore the cat float (in flowers). I’m assuming that was for a parade or something. Your post is fantastic for this week. 😀
Actually it’s a giant sculpture of a puppy. A west highland white terrier. It has a metal structure, covered with fresh flowers. Originally was going to be temporary for the Museum’s Inauguration, but it had an enormous success and they decided to keep it permanently. The people of the Museum replace the flowers so they are always fresh and bright. It is 23 years old and it is more than 40 feet tall. Because the flowers change, every time you see it is the same sculpture, but different, like completely new. I love it.
I couldn’t find a picture of the entire statue,I’m sorry
I found one from the back I’lll add it to the post so you can see it
Love the small animals you found in your own home. And we both obviously found “Puppy” a great find!
Thank you, Teresa. I really love Puppy. And my little animals at home are very dear to me. Most of them gifts of people I love.
That is nice!
