FROM HEAVEN ABOVE ...

Martin, Bonifatius and the Cathedral's Gargoyles ...
AT CLOSE QUARTERS

Martin and Bonifatius - the late Gothic shrine figures are leaving their regular spot for the first time since 1875 due to the installation of a new organ and can be seen at close quarters in the Cathedral Museum.
Also descended from lofty heights are the gargoyles of the Gothic bell floor of the western crossing tower. Eight animals, all differing in genre and style, here assume the function of drainpipes in artistically designed forms. Both object types pose questions, which we shall explore in the guided tour. Take a look and judge for yourself in this cabinet exhibition... AT CLOSE QUARTERS.
