Le lémur et les bijoux



The lemur and the jewels...

Windows like this in Paris leave me speechless, almost...

When I reviewed the photos, I thought it was an image of a monkey or a baboon, but the reflection plays tricks on the eyes.  I was originally captivated by the cloisonné, but now wonder why these jewels are being touted by an animal


bon weekend


Rue Saint Honoré

Hello Genie:
What a very remarkable image. And there is so much to see and to connect with, not least the very creative mind of the 'window dresser'.

Don't you find that Paris shop windows are especially intriguing? (You should link this back to James's Weekend Reflections meme, Genie—it would be a great addition!)

An ape holding jewelry doesn't make me want to buy it, Genie, but that is just me . . .

Is that a stuffed animal, I mean a real one ?! O_o

YEEEEEEEEEEEK !!!!

Lemurian are suppose to be protected ; I don't see that possible if jewelry display use their image to sell their bs ; it will rise to much of envy in the humen looking at them.

But you are right : it make the display so very unique...
