At the request of Bibi from A Yankee in Belgrade Daily Photo to see a gargoyle from the University of Washington campus, here is an image of one of the 28 grotesques that adorn Smith Hall on the Liberal Arts Quadrangle. People don't tend to notice them at cherry blossom time, but they are up there, looming. This one represents war as you might guess from the WWI style helmet, gas mask, and hand grenade. Many UW students lost their lives in WWI (you can see their names here). Dudley Pratt depicted many themes with these architectural ornaments in the late 1930s. You might remember this one that I featured last year.
