Grotesque! That was my reaction when I saw this banking office in Palazzo Salimbeni in Siena. You know why? Just check the human heads.


Very neatly carved on top, these heads belong to men from powerful families. Even Dante’s head sits on the top there! 

It was quite eerie to see them all staring at me.
