Coventry Cathedral Ruins
Located at East Entrance
Why does taking a simple photograph end up being a project for me?
I spotted this head with a broken nose and tried to find out 'who' it was. No luck.
Then, I wanted to refer to it as a 'Gargoyle'
only to read that gargoyles includes a 'water spout'.
Through the magic of the internet I found a site HERE that explains
that if carved stone like this doesn't act as a water spout,
it is a 'Grotesque'.*
But, of course, you knew that - I didn't :).
All around Coventry Cathedral there a number of gargoyles
and grotesques. I will have fun photographing more.
*Addition to post 12th August, 2015:
The History Anorak informs me
that this figure is a 'corbel'.
