Legend has it that gargoyles and stone chimeras were created to keep the evil spirits away from sacred places. This chimera has been perched a top the Notre Dame Cathedral for hundreds of years, as the city changed below. For those who know me, know I love anything Gothic and historical…decided to do this ink piece on one of the historical gargoyles of Paris (used as a waterspout) or if not used as a waterspout, technically called chimeras. I loved its strong silhouette and its presence.
May you think of this fearsome monster as a symbol of the strength within you, ready to do battle with whatever evil it comes across.
