I understand that the origins of the swastika go back a long time in history. The earliest swastika known has been found in Mezine, Ukraine. It is carved on a late paleolithic figurine of mammoth ivory, being dated as early as about 10,000 BC. I also know that this building was built in Chicago in the early 1900’s long before Nazis. Maybe it is my Jewish heritage but I couldn’t live in this building and wonder why the owners didn’t remove this a long time ago. Could you live here?

Saw this cat sleeping peacefully in a window in Logan Square a Chicago neighborhood. I brought my camera up to my eye and he woke up and struck this pose for me. Either that or he was trying to escape? You can see other images and buy a print of this one at my commercial gallery.
