Image Description: The famous Notre Dame cathedral in Paris is well-known for a variety of reasons, a fact easy to understand in light of its nearly 1,000 year history, but this photograph gives us a look at one of its most fascinating architectural aspects: the highly varied and typically frightening gargoyles that man its upper reaches, serving to protect against wayward spirits. All around these fearsome figures, we’re treated to a look at the cathedral’s very complicated architecture, with unique adornments covering every wall and ceiling, all combining to give the structure an almost impossibly mythological look. Covering only a small portion of the cathedral, this photograph forces us to use our imagination in traveling through the dark archway to the right.
