  Straw roof with as decoration a Frysian top facade
by Pavlik_NL

In Friesland they are numerous, the traditional top facade at buildings, that represent two graceful swans, flanking a pointy shaped pole on a triangle top part of the front and backroof. Especially farms and their surroundings barns have them. Ameland was long time a independant island and still has not much in common with Friesland. In Hollum however few farms have taken this graceful habbit from the Frysians, which resulted in a few beautiful farmhouse facades.
