Beverly Gargoyles

Beverly Minster is a beautiful gothic church in Yorkshire which dates from the early 13th Century. Among its many fine features are a series of carvings brutalised by the passage of time. Deliberately mutilated by Purians, damaged by both dilapidation and repair; the character and humour of the subjects and their sculptors still shines through. Fascinating as examples of mutability and permanence.
The images were done in watercolour and pencil.
