Detail fire hydrant II

Following up on yesterday's post, here's a bigger picture. I seem to have found a hydrant with a crooked cap. As for the material, it's some type of metal.

This is so cool. I love the birds' eyes (owl?, eagle?) and then what appears to be a muzzle where the hydrant opens. Do the dogs give this artwork any respect or do they fight over ownership?

So much detail for a thing like that. Now, most things are so basic and without any beauty. Those were the times.

Leif Hagen said...

Wow - that's quite a fancy, ornate fire hydrant! Our hydrants are usually painted red. That one looks somewhat old?

Hilda said...

This is the most gorgeous fire hydrant I have ever seen!

Angela Robak said...

Are all the fire hydrants in your village as ornate as this? Such a thing of beauty!

It looks like it is welcoming you with open arms.

Antjas: I thought they were dogs or something. Now I'm confused. Maybe some mythical creature?

Paula: One vote for the present time: I think workers have better conditions in many parts of the world nowadays.

Leif: We've got red ones too. I'll see if I can find a photo to show tomorrow.

Hilda: :-)

Angela: Technically, they're in Brugg which is a neighboring town. The ones in Villigen proper are boring, but in Stilli, they have interesting ones. Search for "hydrants" on this blog.

AB: Do you get a warm fuzzy feeling? I find them ominous. I think it's those scowling eyebrows.
