Building Myths

I had to share this wild image from the Latvian City of Riga. This comes up when searching for prime examples of Art Nouveau. Evidently, Riga was a hotbed of Art Nouveau activity at the turn of the 19th century. One of the characteristics of Art Nouveau is that it owes nothing to historical images but it clearly owes something to the world of myth and epic tales....wonderful.
