Caption

Arms of Christ's College, University of Cambridge, above the gatehouse of the public entrance. The flanking animals are known as yales or centicores, mythical beasts with antelope bodies, goats heads and swivelling horns. Yales were first written about by Pliny the Elder in his 'Natural History', and may derive from the Hebrew word Yael menaing ibex. It was part of the coat of arms of Lady Margaret Beaufort who was a benefactor to the college (hence their prominent position here). This was the college which Darwin lived in during his time in Cambridge as an undergraduate.
