Weekend: trompe l'oeil

It's been a great week in Las Vegas and Death Valley National Park, one of the most desolate, beautiful places in the United States (interested in pix? Email me.). Home to The Lou today. So, no links and discussion. This is the west face of the building I posted yesterday. It's hard to see in this lo-res image but the inscription on the pedestal of the arms-outstretched figure (is that a pigeon in her left hand? A real one or a painted one?) says PEACE. And so our wish to you, something often hard to find here in Las Vegas, a city build on desire and fantasy.

That's an interesting building. I like the geometry of the windows and the painting that breaks up the montony.
