In architecture a gargoyle is a stone carving of a fantastic or mythical figure used for decorative purposes and are found on structures all over the world. They serve a dual purpose, to protect the building from dark forces as well as divert rain from the building as they are fitted with an elaborate downspout. Grotesques are architectural creatures like a gargoyle but do not have a functioning drainage capability. Gargoyles and grotesques date back to ancient times but were popularized in 12th century Medieval times in Europe.
