Gargoyle figurines have been used as decor for centuries. At first, they played a role as functional decorations used for scaring off supposed evil spirits and enemies of churches and castles but since then, have morphed into Gothic decor meant to act as classic decorations for home and business. That said, as with any type of decor, you can't just put a gargoyle on display and expect it to look both intimidating and incredible. The place where a gargoyle is displayed affects the nature of the decor just as much as the level of experience and imagination of the artist who made it. The best duo of places to put a gargoyle sculpture on display are:
- Next to an entranceway in the backyard: Gargoyles are sentinels and guardian statues by nature. Take advantage of those characteristics and put gargoyles just past the gate to the backyard and just outside the back door of your home. Gargoyle statues like the Florentine Gargoyle and the Boden Gargoyle Sentinel are perfect for this purpose.
- Hanging from a wall: Gargoyles are at home on the ramparts and walls of a castle, old cathedral, and your home. They like to hang out in high places to better intimidate and maybe even swoop down upon anyone who dares enter into their territory. Buy Gaston, the Climbing Gothic Gargoyle Statue to decorate the walls of your home or business with a fantastic classic climbing gargoyle.
