Several of the shops in the central area of Lucca have rather appealing little cherubs adorning their facades. I wondered if a smooth talking cherub salesman had gone through the city at some stage, leaving with a lighter sample case and a heavier purse.
They each have their own personality, someone put time and effort into their design and production. Those who know about such things might be able to tell us what they’re made from. Is it glazed terracotta?
My favourite is the little fellow wearing what seems to be a loin cloth that doesn’t quite do its job.
