OK, seems a bit frivolous for a thread, but my god, can someone please tell me where everybody gets the stone gargoyles I see scattered about the north side, usually on greystones? I know Gethsemane used to have some (way pricey), but any other suggestions?

Type Design Toscano into your search engine and an online catalog of Gargoyles and Dragons should appear. (I'd provide a link but I do not know if linking to a commercial site is allowed on C-D) The aforementioned company has been in business for several decades and is known for their variety of Medieval scuptural offerings. Hope this is helpful.

I just asked my mother-in-law to crouch on the corner of my apartment building roof and make a face like she just ate a huge forkful of kimchi. Voila, custom-made gargoyle.
