It is a tough life being a gargoyle on the corner — you get your face worn away.

Yann, AB: is it really a gargoyle, gargouille, if it is not spitting water? I don't know .... . Est une gargouille?

AB: lol

Well, according to wikipedia architects make the distinction between between non-spitting chimera and gargoyles, but layman often do not. So it depends on whether you are an architect, a layman or a pedant.

Do you want to know another thing I love about bwc?

Of course you do.

It's when I click on one of the labels, such as, gargoyle and all these wonderful pictures of gargoyles and chimera show up.

Martina said...

tholf, okaaay, I guess you like gargoyles ;-)

Did you have the chance to look at Michael G. Chan's Gargoyles of New York?

It's an quite interesting thing - interesting in the sense that I never found much information about why this modern US gargoyling is happening ...
