Photographer's Note

I think that this is a gargoyle; a strange bat like creature that I saw as an ornament on the Arc de Triomf, the arch which is a grand entrance to the Parc de la Ciutadella. (The arch is pictured in the w/s.)

The Arc de Triomf was designed for the 1888 Exhibition by Josep Vilaseca i Casanoves.
Topping the arch are angels tooting horns and offering wreaths.

The Parc was built on the site of a former military fortress; it was artfully designed to offer Barcelona's citizens an experience of nature, recreation and culture.

Perhaps not the sharpest shot, but I wanted to share it with you.
Thanks for looking.
