This is what I have discovered in a dictionary of Russian dialects: many parts of the wooden house façade bear names of… human face parts.
In Karelia, «face» means simply «facade»;
«forehead» stands for «fronton» in Novgorod, Kostroma and Tver Oblasts;
In the town of Bezhetzk, they use «earrings» to denote carved boards drooping from the side of the roof at the facade;
In Arkhangelsk and Murmansk Oblasts, «eyes» was in wide use instead of «windows»;
In Vologda Oblast, «blinker» was a name for a window glass;
«Brow» was an upper bar of the window in Murmank Oblast and carved decorations of the façade in Karelia.
Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera…
