When University College was constructed a large number of quirky carvings were included scattered about the exterior - many are of animals or weird creatures but there are also some showing portraits of the workers themselves. Here you can see some of the little pieces found under the eaves Of Croft House which I showed you yesterday. It's great fun wandering around the building looking for more of them.
Oh, I LOVE these carvings!
joli plan de vue on voit très bien les détails!
Great fanciful carvings, and even the symbol of the Masons included. They must have played a role at this university.
how very cool!
Great carvings round the building, the bull reminds me of the Oxford Bull
They certainly compliment the building!
These are great!
Very much medieval inspired!
That is terrific workmanship!
I do recall a ghost story revolving around masons at U of T....
And gorgeous details :))
Have a great weekend.
Those are amazing.
Nice find. On my occasional visits to T.O. I have noticed some strange carvings and statues on the buildings. I`ll post some some soon on by blog.
