Not so Grotesque

Far less alarming than yesterdays owls are these two grotesques set on the outside of St-Martin-Le-Grand on Coney Street. Actually I think the term grotesque does them an injustice as they look to me like two cuddly baby dragons. St Martins was a 15th century church that was almost completely destroyed by a Baedecker Raid on York in 1942. It was rebuilt in the 1960s as a shrine of remembrance for all who died in the two World Wars.


  1. ah, so even baby grotesques are cuddly looking!

  2. They are quite cute little thingies! Welcome back.
