October Theme Day: Mystery Object

I have been wondering for years what this brick on top of a doorway in Rauensteingasse might signify. Some months ago I finally made enquiries and found out that it marks the entrance to the masonic temple and the Grand Lodge of Austria. For a photo of the entire doorway please click here. You can find informations on the history of Freemasonry in Austria here.


  1. Intruiging ... and if you are not the right sort of person to enter, the brick falls down on your head!

  2. Looking at the full door, one can see that it can be masonic indeed!

  3. Excellent. It is a very ancient masonic symbol indeed.
