Lidval Art Nouveau House
The Lidval House at 1/3 Kamennoostrovsky Avenue is a foremost example of the Art Nouveau style of architecture which was all the rage in St. Petersburg at the turn of the 20th century.
In the forecourt the main entrance is crowned with a bas-relief in the center of which there is a cartouche bearing the date when the house was built (1902). To the right of the date a woodland bird is perched on a pine branch threatening to peck a hare sitting next to it. On the left are a lynx and an owl. A larger stone owl is depicted under the edge of the roof. To the left of the main entrance are fantastic large-headed fish. Lion masks are mounted above the right main entrance.
