Darth vader gargoyle in the Washington National Cathedral

info_outlineInformation in English


In the 1980s the Cathedral, with National Geographic World magazine, sponsored a competition for children to design decorative sculpture for the Cathedral.

The third-place winner was Christopher Rader of Kearney, Nebraska who submitted a drawing of this futuristic representation of evil. Darth Vader was placed on the northwest tower with the other winning designs: a raccoon, a girl with pigtails and braces and a man with large teeth and an
umbrella.

The fierce head was sculpted by Jay Hall Carpenter and carved by Patrick J. Plunkett.
