Gargoyles are carvings on the outside of buildings designed to direct water from the roof away from the base of the walls and have been around since the time of the Ancient Greeks or before. They became very popular on architecture in Medieval times, with a resurgence in the Victorian era, and to some extent more recently.
Gargoyles made of stone appeared in the form of carvings of people or animals or grotesque representations of extravagantly formed, bizarre, ludicrous, absurd, fantastic and also in the sense of being ugly and frightening. Often these carvings are so imaginative as to bear little or no resemblance to any conventional creature and are the products of fertile imaginations and skilled hands. They are common on the more expensive buildings from medieval times, particularly cathedrals and churches.

The Gargoyle Myth is said to drive off evil. They can stand guard and ward off unwanted spirits and other creatures. If they're hideous, frightening and they can scare off all sorts of things. They come alive at night when everyone's asleep so they can protect you when you're vulnerable. Gargoyles with wings can fly round the whole area and cover the village or town as well as the church and they return to their places when the sun comes up.
