Like all cities Paris is full of fascinating faces.

I think she is beautiful. She was made more interesting by what was above her.

This one adorns Oscar Wilde’s tomb. It has recently been cleaned and the lipstick marks have been removed.

  10. I love the way you share themes on your blog, Deb. “Faces” will always be popular. I love the impish face of the sprite holding her shell, also the face above her – I wonder if this one is Joan of Arc, The Maid of Orleans? The artwork of hands woven into the wig is very clever. Reminds me of the tall wigs 18th century aristocratic French ladies wore in Paris. Apparently, those wigs were often places for mice to hide in. I doubt that would happen in Collette’s shop.

    • I’m very sure Collette would not allow mice in her store…..unless they were very well dressed.
