Gargoyle at Cobb Gate is a digitally altered fine art photo of a gargoyle at Cobb Gate. Cobb Gate is a neo-Gothic archway at the northern entrance to the Main Quadrangle of the University of Chicago campus. The gate, complete with gargoyles, was donated by Cobb to the university in 1900. According to university lore, gargoyles at the bottom of the gate represent first-year students, second and third-years climb the gate, with this large griffin at the top representing fourth-year students. This photo is part of a series that includes digitally altered views of architectural details, including the gargoyle.
