Swedish Mothership.. 'conquered by pastry'!



Walking down Fitzgerald St.in Northbridge on Wednesday in search of some of the more elusive murals painted during Form PUBLIC, we came across the over-sized viking head sculpture above.. quelle surprise!  Sitting outside the administration and bakehouse building for Swedish restauranteur Miss Maud previously shown here, looking over to the city that she has for the past 43 years  'conquered by pastry'.. I can't say I love it as much as the aforementioned pastries.. but, it is big :) Is it really Friday already, well for me anyway.. crazy! Have a good one, take care and stay safe...

  1. The Viking head looks like something out of Lord of the Rings.

    Bakeries, on the other hand, are always quite welcome.

  8. I'm in for the pastries!
    Our trees are budding out this week although some species are still quite bare. It has been in the low 20˚C so that has all the blossoms bursting open finally - about 5 weeks later than normal.

  9. I will not remind you that Vikings did not have horns on their helmets but wings.

  13. A must to click on the link to see what Miss Maud has on offer. It all makes sense. Neat that your second shot has a little of Perth in the background. Still can't get used to it being the next day where you are :). Have a Good Friday!

  14. A number of folks found out it is never good to get "ahead" of a Viking, if you get my meaning. I think Vikings are my ancestors, but I'm not particularly proud of them. I would, however, venture to taste Miss Maud's treats if'n I was in Perth!

  16. Administration and bakehouse. I have a hard time grasping that, in English, let alone Swedish.

  17. I had never seen that! You do find the most amazing things Grace!

  18. Well found, Gracie! I've shared this on Facebook with my friend Norm Jorgensen who wrote 'The Last Viking" (http://perthdailyphoto.blogspot.com.au/2014/05/swedish-mothership-conquered-by-pastry.html) and is about to launch the second book in the series from Fremantle Press.

  22. A tough guy with his helmet on, I know nothing about Swedish pastries, a rendeer cake?

  23. I think I would be more interested in the bakehouse than the sculpture.
