Gothic details

Gargoyles, Notre Dame de Paris.

These aren’t all as old as they look, the gargoyles are part of Viollet-le-Duc’s 19th century restoration of Notre Dame, but the sepia tone makes them seem complementary. There’s a lot more at the Andrew White Architectural Photographs Collection at Luna Commons.
