We end the #gargoyle series with a #fbf post of a popular subject at Hammond Castle Museum. This photogenic guy gets a lot of attention due to his outdoor perch but this #grotesque is not original to the Museum. Still, we enjoy seeing the images of him that our visitors share!

Continuing the #gargoyle love.. we originally posted this in 2016 on instagram, and in 2012 on Facebook. Did you know in architecture a gargoyle 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? Or as in this case, a comfortable perch for a bird of prey... #Gloucester #HammondCastle #CapeAnn #castle #museum #VisitMA #mytinyatlas #igersboston #bestcitybreaks #hawk #postcardplaces #birdsofinstagram

A couple of days ago we posted a drawing from 1927 of a gargoyle that is an architectural detail inside Hammond Castle Museum. A wedding this weekend at Hammond Castle Museum had living statuary gargoyles to entertain their guests 😍 Talk about unique! #repost

For a #Halloween edition of #tbt we’re posting an architectural rendering for the Great Hall at Hammond Castle that details a #gargoyle that can be seen today high above the floor in the south west corner of the space. One of the architects from Allen & Collens Architects, Charles Collens went on to design The Cloisters Museum in New York City.
