We have brought a wide range of gargoyles to kaccents.com. While most of us may feel somewhat fearful about these gothic creatures, gargoyles originally began as down spouts to direct rainwater away from the masonry of medieval cathedrals. Even despite their deliberate grotesque features, gargoyles have a special place in churches and cathedrals around the world especially in Europe where their history first began. They were used to ward off evil from the cathedral. We have featured some medieval Notre Dame gargoyles - these lifelike gargoyles were first constructed in  Notre Dame de Paris in the 12th century for the Cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris. When the cathedral fell to decay, a master craftsman, Viollet-le-Duc was engaged to restore it to its former glory and that include restoring all the gargoyle statues to its incredible medieval form. The gargoyles of Notre Dame are fearful guardians of the Cathedral and are conjured by the most  fertile of minds Ė they feature a combination of  inhuman form, part man, part birds. They are seen as fearsome crouching creatures, ready to pounce at the next available opportunity. Our range of gargoyle statues presents some fearful and even funny renditions of manís imaginative mind in creating some of the most gruesome creatures. Each piece is a replica of the original and intended to bring a watchful eye to your home and garden. We hope you find a special place for these lovely gargoyles!
