Why would one make a simple brown or gray tiled roof, when one can decorate it green and gold? And finish with a great two-headed eagle, just for the flair?
Those who lived their lives in the gutter in ancient Vienna most likely never saw this beauty. It was probably visible only for those who either could afford a penthouse apartment, or were daring enough to climb onto the roofs.
Perspective. In this case you can buy it, but in most cases it needs to be attained by struggle.
