Animal mouth gate

This is unique.  The gate is surrounded by the painted teeth, mouth, eyes, and nose of an animal.  I think it is a leopard.  I wonder what the owners came up with the concept of painting the area around their gate.

Driving into this gate would remind me of a ride an an amusement park or Disneyland, such as Mr. Toad's Wild Ride.  

This week we have more photos of Julie's raft trip through the Grand Canyon on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

That is very unusual and kind of whimsical. I bet the kids in families who rent this house love it.

i'm surprised that it is a private residence since it looks to me that it could be an entrance to an amusement park.

I'm not "wild" about the wild animal arch, but I still love those rustic gates.

My word, this does make a statement.

It definitely makes me think about some kind of theme park. Very interesting gate!

Mmmm, not my style. It is hard understanding why owners would think this is what they want for an entrance to their home.

Wow! Even a little scary.

I actually LOVE this! The people who live there and actually thought this up and then had it executed - I think they would be a lot of fun to have dinner with!

But then I just thought about the fact that there are no street numbers - so the leopard gate certainly makes the house easy to find!
