Great pablominto 2006-10-28 3:31

Hi Silke,
This is an interesting addition to your presentation of.... what do you call them?
Giving me an opportunity to see them in their own environment!
Exciting lines in the composition, excellent textures in the architecture!
Greetings,

Default To pablominto: gargoyles

Hi Pablo
I'm really glad you've enjoyed my gargoyle collection. In architecture, gargoyles (from the French gargouille, originally the throat or gullet, and similar words derived from root gar, to swallow, the word representing the gurgling sound of water) are the carved terminations to spouts which convey water away from the sides of buildings.
The term is also loosely applied to include chimeras, which are grotesques that lack the waterspout and the original function of gargoyles.
hmmm -- maybe the really scary gargoyles I have waiting to post on October 31 should include this complete definition?
Thanks for visiting.
Cheers
Silke
