Backside of the Lazarus Gate
This little gate is the backside of the Lazarus gate which is the entry to the museum garden. Actually the Lazarus gate has been rebuild on this spot, what you see is the gate which gave entrance to an old man and woman home, which used to be at another spot as well.
I love this decoration of the old days, they did their best to decorate their homes with stuff which is still possible to admire 400 years later. When you enlarge the photo you can see the detail of the work.
