The stucco decoration

The most characteristic rooms of the House of the Owls are rich in stucco decoration, intergrated or harmonised with the pictorial decoration, the glass, the wood carving and the fabric decorating the walls.
The most important stucco work is that in the Room of the Swallows (swallow’s nests in the corners showing the phases of courtship, brooding, hatching and feeding), the Room of the Satyrs (tendrils of ivy on the walls, snails in the cornices and, in the eye of the lantern, a ring of crouching Satyrs), and in the Room of the “Nail” (a frieze and the central ceiling rose designed as bunches of grapes and vine tendrils and leaves).
