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 about 3.5kg. The colour is Cotswold sandstone.
All our ornaments are cast and coloured by hand in our workshop in Zeeland, the Netherlands.
