It makes me think to the gargoyles we saw Pierre and me at the Mont Saint Michel! It was so fascinating! I bought a little one in a shop but I don't were it is now! Sad!

Gargoyles always look strange don't they? Stunning architecture.

wonder if they mean something different or all there to keep evil away.
The chinese use mirrors lol
Now imagine waking up to your own face in the morning lol
That should be scary enough lol

I'm sure all evil spirits run a mile when they see these scary gargoyles. The building is standing the test of time so those strange creatures are doing a great job.
