Description

The first image shows the lock of a house in Garganta la Olla, Extremadura (Spain), which is the lock of an old brothel or public house that is preserved in this town, located very close to Yuste, so it is believed that it was frequented by the guard of the monarch Carlos V. The second image shows a small statue of a woman at the door of the house. Note the detail of the chapines or heels of the two characters and the clear sexual symbolism of the lock.
