Abstract - Gargoyle

I've always been fascinated by the mediaeval sense of the grotesque. The faces that adorn the pont neuf in Paris are of particular interest, because they represent caricatures of the contemporary who's who. Every one of them lampoons one of the patrons of the bridge itself.

This is a highly abstracted image drawn from one of them. I have another that was scanned from a contact sheet. The quality is too poor, alas, to display here. If I ever find the negative again, though, I'll be sure to post it.
