If someone had been browsing the books or someone had been buying an ice-cream it would have been another matter. But a street photo without people is just not to my liking. The strange background is just a decorated tarpaulin covering a building site.

According to Wikipedia it is a symbolic cave encrusted with allegorical figures. Hercules ties up the three-headed dog Cerberus, while inside the cave are three female figures representing the ancient empires of Babylonia, Greece and Persia. On top is the crowned Europe.
I have to admit that Baroque is not my favorite style in art history.
It is possible that the woman was posing, but not for me.
