Just a little cherub peeking out from a wall. Venice is like that. I found myself so busy looking at the wonders all around that the little gems were easily overlooked - but so delightful when I saw them.
This fellow is on the corner of the Campo dei more, not far from the old Ghetto. A quiet corner of Venice, largely free of tourists.
Dotted around the city are Bocce di Leone, dating back to the glory days of teh Repblic. Letters could be posted here denouncing fellow citizens for crimes and unpatriotic behaviour (the powers that be actually preferred the denunciations to be signed, and rarely followed up anonymous complaints).
this fellow can be found on teh Zaterre, a gorgeous place to sit, have a drink, and watch the world go by.
