Can you believe it? The first image in the left slideshow shows the Austin State Capitol with snow! Pallasart 'headquarters' are located in an Austin mansion in the historic Aldrich Place neighborhood, north of the University of Texas campus. The Palazzo dei Cani Neri - or "Palace of the Black Dogs" was built in 1924. People often think it's a Italian restaurant or a plant nursery. Once a couple came up to the front door and requested a menu! The black dogs were Lillie, a Scottish Terrier and Gilbert A. Schnauzer, sadly both dogs passed away last year and are sorely missed.
One of the highlights of the front garden is a full sized bronze statue of Diana with her hounds. There's also a stone fountain with bronze mermen copied from originals in the Piazza Navona in Rome.
