Gargoyles are supposed to represent evil spirits being driven out of a building, and I love them. I want to have some built into my house someday.
Long ago, I worked at a big law firm in Chicago with offices on the 50-something floor in the Loop. From up there you could see the gargoyles in the older buildings clearly, and I found them fascinating.
My favorites, though, are on the side of Yale Law School. Above, you can see a crooked cop; there is also a corrupt judge and an armed robber. I loved that these were the evil spirits we were driving out! And some days, I think it might be true.
