The Custom House J3474 : The Custom House, Belfast has more ornamentation that just heads J3474 : Head, Custom House, Belfast (6) and a pediment J3474 : The Custom House, Belfast (detail). The photo shows two (of four) angels in the spandrel (in a multi-storey building, a wall panel filling the space between the top of the window in one storey and the sill of the window in the storey above) representing manufacturing and peace). The protective mesh might look a bit unsightly but itís effective at keeping the starlings out.
