"Cute" isn't the first thing to come to mind when you hear the word "gargoyle". Even if someone had never laid eyes on the intimidating, dangerous appearance of a typical gargoyle sculpture, he or she would probably still associate "gargoyle" with something unwholesome. I mean even the very word sounds like like a growl or term for a piece of cheese that went bad three weeks ago. That's alright though because gargoyles are meant to make a lasting, intimidating impression because they were created to keep enemies and evil spirits from entering castles and gothic churches.
However, even though some of the best modern gargoyles still sport that original fearsome appearance, there actually are some that could honestly be referred to as being "cute". If you don't believe me, just take a gander at little Emmett the Gargoyle Sculpture. Far from being fearsome, Emmett looks downright bashful as he wraps his muscled arms around his front legs in a tight hug. He isn't showing any fangs and his fingers and toes have neatly trimmed nails instead of claws.
Competing with Emmett for the "cutest gargoyle" prize are the Picc-a-Dilly Gargoyle Sculptures. These garden gargoyle statues are a goofy little trio bound to bring a smile to the face of every garden party guest.
