The façade of the house of the Adam family of sculptors is adorned with sculpture:
- The ground floor has a frieze with four symbolic animals (elephant, horse, camel, crocodile) representing the four continents.
- On the first floor, on a console, is a statue a woman is accompanied by geniuses, representing the Earth. Above the windows are other geniuses with instruments of the architect, sculptor, painter and musician.
- On the second floor between the windows Mars the god of war, with under him in a cartouche Venus with Eros. Other deities adorn the tops of windows on the left, Jupiter and Juno, right, Neptune and Amphitrite (not on our photos).
- On the third floor between the windows Apollo with his lyre, with under him in a cartouche Saturn with his scythe, and above him in a cartouche Bacchus (not on our photos).
