A gargoyle sculpture made from rock/cement is sitting on a ledge attached to the Notre Dame cathedral, looking over the city of Paris. The gargoyle is described in a profile view with a large ear and an army helmet with a distinctly metal looking point. We can see the city slowly fading to white as it recedes in the background. There is a bar of text on the bottom of the image. It is indicated that this is, "No. 4"
