Police Building, Montevideo

Police Building, MontevideoThis massive building belongs to the Police force in Montevideo.

Huge columns and that wide expanse of concrete around the roofline. Everything about this building is so enormous, except the windows. There are several small porthole windows above the doorways and the regular rectangular windows are very small in contrast to the overall bulk of the building.

And then you notice something delicate and beautiful with no definite purpose. Decoration, pure and simply, as decoration.

Two lines, liked piped icing, tracing the line of the steps leading to the main entrance.
