Even the most sinister looking gargoyle can be a pleasant welcome to a unique and attractive gothic garden. Originally, the main purpose of using gargoyles in many medieval cathedrals was to teach the majority of the people who were illiterate. These gargoyles were used as symbols and help show the frightening images of hell and eternal damnation.
Today, you can use gargoyles to add interest to your gothic garden hence it is important that you know how to choose a gargoyle for your garden. You might want to consider these several tips in choosing a gargoyle:
- First, you should look for a finely crafted product which does not only look good but also provides the same attention to details which the original gargoyles of the medieval period offer. The presence of intricate detail is a very important quality of a desirable garden gargoyle.
- Second, choose a gargoyle according to the location it will take in your garden. If you want to place a gargoyle on a pedestal or on a high location in your garden, you may opt for something with plinth as if it is looking down.
