Coventry

Carvings, Gargoyles and Statues

Man's head and fists Lion head sticking out tongue It predates V-8 juice...
Evil Jester face St. Michael defeating evil
Woman's face on a spire A crowned man
Statues in niches Two spires
A very ornate spire, different building
That's one big nose on that gargoyle An I'll-get-you kind of look
Goofy looking thing Reminds me of a cartoon character but can't think who
More canine gargoyle Kind of bull dog faced gargoyle

Wall Carvings

We were quite surprised to see a skull and crossbones carved on the side of a cathedral.

Carvings on Coventry Cathedral
It must mean something, but not to me Really, a skull and crossbones!

Stain Glass that survived WWII

Between the vibration of bombs, the heat of the fires and all this time it is really amazing that this glass remains.
