Charlie Hebdo Victims Being Honored as Gargoyles
(via The Creators Project)
This will be a pretty neat way to remember to honor freedom of expression.
The restoration of a tower that used to be execute rebels and martyrs during the rule of Louis XVIII in the French town of La Rochelle is going to have the added accoutrement of perching stone visages of those employed at satirical French magazine Charlie Hebdo that were tragically murdered in an attack earlier this year.
As gargoyles, they’ll give the tower a new significance that will hopefully encourage to speak and express freely and honors those who died for it, especially when it comes making fun of those who so many others are afraid of.
