Above, this door graces the entrance to the ladies room at The Calgary Stampede. Below, a Pizza Hut in Swift Current, Saskatchewan. These fine doors were sent to us by reader Cindy.
I asked my friend, classical scholar Dr. Ken Ostrand, to identify the figures for us. The lady above is Athena. Ken writes about the gentleman below: “I’ve always felt it was Zeus, but until recently the majority view was that it was Poseidon. Now authorities are shifting to Zeus. It’s a magnificent bronze piece, about 6’6, naked, and powerful, from ca. 470 BC, if memory serves me right.”
The wreath graces the bathroom door at the Blissful Journey Day Spa here in Hillsborough.
This tall lady peeks out from the ladies room door of Food Lion in Hillsborough.
I snapped this elegant sign at the Black Bear Cafe and Bistro in Warrenton, Virginia.

Silvia found the door below at The Chef, a diner in Manhattan, Kansas.

From Ericka, comes a door on Marco Island, Florida.
Carol, famous for The Potty Trip of Potty Trips, discovered this door at the Evans Prairie County Club, The Villages, Florida.

Finally, a lady shape on the wall at my beloved Southpoint Mall. I think she’s got a nice funky edge to her.
And that wraps it up for Edition Number Twenty-one of our Ladies Room Door Art Series. I can’t tell you how excited I am to receive an email with new doors! Thank you all so much!
