While on vacation in Aruba, a Netherlands-owned island off the coast of Venezuela, we noticed something interesting about the front porches there. Many of them have a ceramic or plaster screen of sorts with openings for ventilation.

The effect is both lacy and solid, presumably to block the hot, arid sunlight but allow for air circulation.
