For Hanne. I would check this out. Roof decoration.

Solve puzzle
An owl sign (Fries: ├╗leboerd, Groningen: oelbred, Drenthe: oelebret) is a triangle-shaped, vertically standing shot caused by the triangular end shield of a hipped trapezoid to pollarding. This triangular wooden board was used for the ventilation (opening) and to the barn to protect against watering. Through the hole could also church and stone-owls flying in and out. The oldest archive entry is from 1669. An owl plate consists of two parts. In the middle a decorated beam is called a broker. On both sides the Frisian owls signs one mute swan with a curved neck.

Sorry, At the collage, the written part, I lost a piece of the text. I saw it too late. Here I did write the right text.

I'm glad you like it girls. Normaly you see it only on farms. But a few times I saw it on other buildings. I don't think I ever saw it at a normal house.
