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.

Cindy wrote that she discovered the doors below “at a Greek restaurant in Banff. At first it was kind of confusing as to which was which.”

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.”

And finally, Cindy  found this sign at a bar in NW Wisconsin.

The wreath graces the bathroom door at the Blissful Journey Day Spa here in Hillsborough.

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!

  1. Love all your posts but the ones about ladies’ room doors are ones I especially look forward to. Some doors are so creative! Now when I see a hum drum bathroom door I shake my head and say “Tsk!” So boring!

    • Ha! I am sometimes ready to tell the manager, “You need a more creative ladies room door!” I check for them as soon as I get to the restaurant. Can’t stand to wait another second.

  2. You have a great selection of ladies room doors this time – the best I have seen! Well done to everyone who contributed!
