pj_bosman 2012-04-21 in den vergulden turk leiden 7218

"In Den Vergulden Turk" (In The Gilded Turk) is a former mansion at the Breestraat in Leiden, the Netherlands. Most likely designed by Willem van der Helm (c. 1628-1675). The sculpture in the pediment was made in 1673 by the Flemish sculptor Pieter Xavery (born c. 1647). The turban jewel may look odd this way, but so does the real thing too (see picture below) - 2011/12, Patrick Bosman
