Beautiful Beasts

Gargoyles can be creepy and scary. I call them beautiful and cool…with a pinch of darkness. They are said to scare off and protect from any evil or harmful spirits. So it is hard for me not to love them.

  1. I love them too, and I’ve always wanted one in the house. I actually gave my brother and his wife one for christmas one year and they loved it too after I told them it would protect them. Love the post.

    I absolutely love gargoyles! I sculpt them in polymer clay and paint them. Did you ever read “God bless the gargoyles” by dav pilkey? A kids’ book but it encapsulates the concept of gargoyles- and what it means to be misunderstood.

  3. Nightmares tonight. Love those creatures. Thanks for the photos.

  4. Never heard of this book but I am definitely gonna try to find it! Thanks for the tip about it 🙂

  5. Hope you will not have the nightmares! ; )

    These are really dramatic!

    Great looking gargoyles and you’ve captured them really well. Particularly effective in b&w.

  13. Thank You. I do agree, black and white makes images more dramatic in this case.
