ABC Wednesday and Yard Art Thursday

G is for Gargoyle
ABC Wednesday

This guy sits upon the front deck of a house we drive by frequently. It's at least a couple of feet tall.  I couldn't catch it with my camera from a distance, but its mouth is painted red on the inside.  Its qualities as a deterrent to trespassers or thieves is shaky but it certainly catches people's attention!

  1. Ah ... all these G words of which I did not think, but surely know. Gargoyles are wonderful. I will be in Paris within two weeks and always walk around Notre Dame checking out the gargoyles.

    I can see the handle for the garage door behind your charming little fellow. I don't know if he would ward off thieves, but he would be worth stealing on his own!!

  6. Julie: have fun in France!

    Sylvia: glad you enjoyed it!

    Steve: isn't he?? :-)

    Tumblewords: I have a small gargoyle in my garden. I priced a guy this size and it was around $85 and, of course, weighs a ton.

    Roger: this gargoyle is THE dude! ;-)
