Notre Dame sculpture - Free image download

Image Description: This hellish creature is certainly frightening to look at, especially given its perch high over the city of Paris from atop the famous Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, France. With its mouth agape, ears flared, and a single horn atop its head, the demon looks as if it is pulling itself up through the stone of the building itself; whether it is doing so in order to offer protection to the cathedral’s inhabitants, or to terrorize the city below, is surely up for debate. Behind the creature, Paris’ lights and buildings are visible for kilometers on end, giving us a view that reaches all of the way to the horizon, where the invisible Sun is setting on yet another day.
