Wonderful.  Hopeful Paddy can provide some temporary  protection  until the gargoyles  are in place.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

Beautiful, Shiral, and so intricate.  Yes, there must be gargoyles!
From ghoulies and ghosties and long-leggity beasties and things that go bump in the night...good Lord deliver us!

Well, and Paddy of all people (entities?) would understand the value of careful preparation and thorough construction.  ;D

In all seriousness, the cathedral is amazing and coming along beautifully.
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

love the roof lines. I had wondered about the little niches at the east end. Glad they got roofs too.
Now that it has been mentioned, I think a gargoyle would not be out of place.

Shiral, your cathedral gets more beautiful and impressive with every step. It is amazing! I agree that a gargoyle is called for. My daughter almost bought a house in a historic area, a three story townhouse with a resident gargoyle named Edgar. Really liked him a lot. Unfortunately, the house didn't work out. Would have enjoyed a gargoyle in the family.

Alas, no gargoyles around my place either. But then, it was built in the early 1970's, not a golden age for gargoyles.  Thanks for your kind remarks everyone, and clearly I need to do some gargoyle research.

Hello everyone,
Every time I do a new building, it always surprises me that the wee, finicky details are the things that take the longest. You'd think I'd have learned that by now! Anyhow, here's the latest update on the Cathedral's progress. We're getting close to the end, now. Here are  pictures of the West Facade, which has had most of the detailed additions since my last update. Also pictured is the Eastern end and the North Side.  Enjoy!

Wow! love all the roof crenelations. How ever did you cut all of those out? Wonderful!

@Shiral  didn't you have a website that showcased all your buildings and a way to order a commissioned one?

I still do, I think....That is, I haven't taken it down. I haven't updated it in years, though.
