- GARGOYLES -
A Gargoyle by definition is a grotesque carved human or animal face or figure projecting from the gutter of a building, typically acting as a spout to carry water clear of a wall. When not constructed as a waterspout and only serving an ornamental or artistic function, the correct term for such a sculpture is a grotesque, chimera, or boss. However, in common usage, the word "gargoyle" is generally used to describe any monstrous sculpture, whether intended as a waterspout or not (Wikipedia).
You will notice that the Gargoyle Wines logo is a stylised version of Stryga - the famous Notre Dame puke faced Gargoyle above.
For us Puke Face Lads, Gargoyles play a special role with each of us having to display a Gargoyle in our home...
