Brown Tan Black

Brown, tan, and black are colors obvious on plaster bust found in Montreal’s Christ Church Cathedral depicting religious figure perhaps that of Jesus Christ or Saint John the Baptist.

Several years ago after admiring the striking Anglican Gothic Revival architecture of this landmark church located next door to what used to be the old Eaton’s department store on Saint Catherine street I decided to visit it.

The interior of this church as its exterior, is fascinating and historical with all sorts of very interesting artifacts from Montreal’s glorious past moreover, this structure is still functions as active place of worship.

Today the Cathedral is melded with a modern multi-story glass and steel office skyscraper joined at its back-end compared to when it was first erected by wealthy Protestant Montrealers almost 200 years ago.

Glaring Creature

Glaring gargoyle creature stares down on passersby from facade of Christ Church Cathedral in Montreal.

Glaring creature is member of army of malicious looking gargoyles, guardians of Montreal’s downtown
Christ Church Cathedral,  allegedly supposed to ward off evil spirits.

=================================================================================================
Glaring gargoyle creature seems to exhibit extreme evil intent as seen on its distorted face looking down at passersby on Saint Catherine Street.

It along with plenty of other unique, malicious looking gargoyles carved into the Gothic Revival facade of Christ Church Cathedral are its guardians against real evil that allegedly stalks the downtown street in Montreal.

This member of a gargoyles army adorning the facade is supposed to scare of evil spirits that may want to enter this Anglican church intent on messing around with its parishioners.
