The woman on the wall

This trompe l'oeil statue 'stands' on a wall at the lower end of Skadarlija, a street that makes up most of Belgrade's bohemian quarter. She appears to be decked out in grapes, but roof you see here that she's overlooking is part of a well-known beer garden.

Incroyable le trompe l'oeil!
Une des femmes de Bacchus?

Skadarlija - one of my favorite streets in the world.
I have to say, Bibi, I wish I could change cities with you for a while!

Is she trying to add some class to the beer garden? LOL.

So those are hops she's holding?

I see she was put up there in 1992—so does she predate the beer garden or did Rebecca have the right idea?
