Two other art pieces that add to the intriuge at DIA are the twin gargoyles sitting in suitcases. Titled “Notre Denver” the cast bronze sculptures by artist Terry Allen are found  areas on the East and West ends of the Great Hall. They sit on top of pedestals, overlooking the the baggage claim areas.

From the airports website:

The gargoyles, roughly the size of a fifth-grade boy, are seated inside suitcases. Historically, gargoyles were placed on buildings to protect the site. These are placed slightly above the travelers’ heads to oversee and ensure that baggage will arrive safely at DIA.

Gargoyles, of course, orginated in the middle ages when stone statues called “grotesques” were placed on the exterior of Catholic cathedrals to channel water away from the roof, but also to ward off evil spirits. Since the Freemasons built many of the temples in Europe, the presence of gargoyles at the airport strengthens the theory for some that DIA is a cathedral or temple for the Masons and the New World Order. Others note that gargoyles are the symbols of the reptilian aliens, which are evil, shape-shifting creature that people like David Icke contend are running the show from the underground base beneath the airport.
