Previous 1 of 2 Next
The term gargoyle, which derives from the Old French word for windpipe, originally meant a grotesquely carved roof gutter water spout used in Gothic architecture. Today the term refers to any grotesque figure resembling a gargoyle. This delightful recarved example, who may be screaming, yawning, or even singing, comes from Magdalen College Chapel, Oxford University. The chapel dates from the founding of the college in 1458 by William of Waynflete, Bishop of Winchester and Chancellor of England. Cathedral Stone. English, 15th century.
