One of the more charming detail of the buildings in Prague is the way they announce their purpose or heritage. This is usually done by some ornamental sign at the top. In Secession houses, the sign (if there) might include the date of the building or the architect. In the Baroque houses, especially those that line Neruda Street, coming down from the castle to the river in Mala Strana, or in the Old Town (Stare Mesto) Square, the signs are visual icons. In some cases their meaning is clear. The above sign, for example, marks the House of the the Three Fiddles, which was once owned by a master violin maker. In others, the meaning is sometimes less clear. Also present in this premiere spot on the facade, just above the door, are religious paintings or icons, sculpted animals, or images whose meaning is hard to decode. It is just one more detail in the very detailed landscape of the city--one more ornament, one more spot for darting eyes to land.
