Primacialny palac

Another page from the street sketchbook…

Note the C and I on wires held by cherubs over the doorway.  I am told Austrian Empress Maria Theresa used them as symbols for her reign… They are supposed to stand for Knowledge and Justice, and their graphic equivalents (barely visible in the mosaic atop) are the book and the sword.

Primacialny Palac also houses the famous Hall of Mirrors.
