Today's Photo:  House of Chimeras

The House of Chimeras derives its popular name from the ornate decorations depicting exotic animals and hunting scenes. The name does not refer to the chimaera of mythology, but to an architectural style known as chimaera decoration in which animal figures are applied as decorative elements to a building. Architect Vladislav Gorodetsky's unique architectural style earned him praise as the Antoni Gaudí of Kiev.
