The grotesque features of a Gargoyle frighten away evil spirits and give protection. Gargoyles make loyal companions and powerful guardians. These Gargoyle earrings are cast in sterling silver and are 3/4" high and carefully detailed. The Gargoyles are completely three dimensional and the back side of the wings are beautifully ribbed with the Gargoyles forked tail peeking through.
In architecture, gargoyles or grotesques (fantastical creatures) were originally designed as rain spouts to convey water away from the roof and to prevent damage to the building. The Notre Dame Gargoyle is probably the most famous. On many trips to Paris, I climbed the ancient circular stone staircase up to Notre Dame’s tower and paid my regards to these remarkable stone guardians.
