Gargoyles sit atop Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France. Photo by Paul Almasy / Corbis Technically, this shows a "Grotesque", as strictly speaking to be classified as "Gargoyle" it must funnel / spout water!
The Institute is guarded by stone gargoyles who come to life when the institute is attacked. (I think they'll each have diff personalities like the gargoyles in that cartoon the hunchback, but maybe scarier)
I LOVE gargoyles! Awesome grotesque (gargoyles are waterspouts, grotesques are those that aren't)! I love these things, and it's sad how many people think they're bad and/or evil.when they're created to be the exact opposite!
