The door


The handle from two days ago belongs to the main entrance of the Lateinschulhaus. Note the Brugg emblem above the door. There are eight female figures on the facade. Seven depicting the seven liberal arts as defined by Martianus Capella (Wiki on the topic) Musica, Astronomia, Gramatica, Dialectica, Rhetorica, Geometria and Arithmetica, and an eight figure representing Theologia.

It's so neat and trim it looks like a drawing instead of real life.
