One can't but wonder what might have gotten into the heads of peculiar house owners. Jug ears, bedroom eyes, grumpy faces - welcome to Düsseldorf!

@Eleftheria: Usually you find musclemen and demi-gods on the facades. :-)

Jen from alpharetta, United States

Very funny!

@Jen: One of the stranger facades in town. :-)

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Grumpy old house indeed. But interesting detail that you have captured, nonetheless.

@Steven: Best and silliest things are sometimes right above your head! :)

@Twelvebit: Eeek!

MaryB from Staffordshire, United Kingdom

lol! :D it looks like someone had a sence of humour, or could it be revenge :D Well spotted MS.

@MaryB: A revenge is an idea that could be possible too! And it would be a persistent one, as this house is hundred years old!

I have a neighbour just like that.. she's evil.

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

Why, it's just a facade with character! If it weren' wouldn't have stopped to shoot it!

@Japanalia: This is actually a quite extreme one, maybe the faces are high above the ground for this reason. :-)

Hidalgo from Herunen, Finland

Good characters. Great shot.
