Abstract:

Documentary illustrates the history and symbolism of the architectural gargoyle.

For centuries we have adorned our rooftops with these mythical and mysterious beasts. Some say these fantastic creatures represent the souls of the condemned, turned to stone before they could flee judgment. Others suggest they are actually agents of good, warding off far more devilish spirits. Almost every city, town, and village has at least a few gargoyles spying from some lofty perch. Sometimes frightening, sometimes comical, these frozen figures seem strangely alive ... as if ready to awaken at any moment. What is it about them that so fascinate the minds of men?. Come pierce the shroud of mystery and superstition that surrounds these most recognizable of cursed creatures. Learn what their bearing and expression say about their plight, and yours.
