Hi Bev

I am not 100% convinced it's a rhino. More likely it is a gargoyle or dragon. But the resemblance to a rhino is certainly very strong. Thanks for your research efforts too on the screaming face in Czech Rep. I posted the other day. Much appreciated. The blue sky makes a wonderful backdrop here. Tfs!

Default To ChrisJ: Rhino in Reims

Thank you, Chris, for your critique and thoughtful observations.

​​​​​​I wasn't sure about the carving but considered that maybe, from times past, when the Romans used to bring strange beasts, including rhinos, from Africa, to die in their Colosseum, there may have been a recorded memory!
Anyway, the alliteration of 'Rhino' and 'Reims' was too good to ignore!

Have a lovely day,
