Gargoyle Planter “Sheila”
Gargoyles are often ugly and frightening stone carvings, and this one is no exception. Built into medieval buildings and cathedrals to ward off evil spirits gargoyles often had a practical function as a channel for rainwater or support for a beam or buttress. The Sheila gargoyle doubles as a handy planter, possibly an attempt to make her look more beautiful.
Cast by hand in frost proof casting stone Sheila can remain outdoors all year round. She is 19cm wide, 23cm high, and weighs 3.5kg.
Actual colours can differ from the photos. Because all our ornaments are made and finished by hand no two are exactly alike.
