The Church of Saints Peter and Paul in the old town district of Kraków, Poland. A Roman Catholic, Polish Baroque church is the biggest of the historic churches of Kraków. It was built between 1597–1619. It is said that the Jesuits spent so much money on this ornate facade and these sculptures that they ran out of money to finish the rest of the building. Indeed, behind this impressive baroque facade is a church made from ordinary brick.
Inverted head of Medusa (Greek monster with venomous snakes in place of hair) as the base of a column. This subterranean structure is one of the 336 columns in the largest Byzantine cistern in Istanbul built in the year 532. The head in this picture is believed to come from a building built between the 3rd and 4th centuries during the early Roman age. The cistern was forgotten for centuries and was rediscovered accidentally in 1545 :)
