An affection for gargoyles...

Gargoyles... I have many.  Mostly cheap.  Some resin replications of some notable ones.  A very few castings of historic ones.  I do not know why.  I despise clowns but have a great affection for gargoyles.

If you want to read something of gargoyles, I suggest Matthew Alderman, an architect of some note now with the historic firm Cram and Ferguson (designers of the some of the most beautiful and inspiring church structures around).  Just read.  I hope you will like gargoyles, too.

The Devil in the Details:  The Return of the Gargoyle.   Note the one in the photo; Le Stryge, the gargoyle on watch atop Notre Dame.
