    I Have A Few But They're Sore Of Scattered

    I've always liked them really, I remember buying a few around when I was 8 years old. I have two on an arch that I keep on a desk. I have another that's sort of a single statue. Then i have kind of a ram-head one I think. I actually lost track of a few of them.

    My Gargoyle Collection

    I strated collecting gargoyles about three years ago.  I was in a metaphysical store in my area and came across a random one sitting by himself on a bottom shelf.  He's sitting cross-legged and has the head of a goofy looking saint bernard.  He's got little horns...

    My Other Gargoyles

    The other gargoyles in my collection are technically not authetic gargoyles, altho they are somewhat spooky.  One is of a gargoyle similar to Georges (my first) sitting in a garden chair.  It was given to my by my favorite former student after I retired.  He knew...

    Little Servants

    I love gargoyles, too. My first was the sort of famous one from Notre Dam, the real thing, and the others are knockoffs such as a ledge seated skeleton with angel wings, and a CVS Halloween hybrid with wings and claws, among others including a sort of dog with wings. I pretend...
