The history of the gargoyle dates the stone creature back at least three centuries. The specially-made creatures were designed so rain from a rooftop would run into the open top of the stone creature and spew out the mouth to direct it away from the building, preventing damage to the building. Animal or human figures were often depicted as frightening creatures with wings, horns, claws and other imaginary additions.
