La Maison du bois, Mâcon (Saône-et-Loire (71))

La Maison du bois is probably the oldest house in Mâcon, but certainly the most famous, and dates from between 1490 and 1510. Its facade is entirely in wood and decorated with figures that certainly aren't always as innocent as they initially appear: it wasn't until I processed the shot of the monkey, for instance, that I realised what was happening. I'll have to go back when fewer people are dining so I can have a look at the other side of the house.
