Gargoyles free pdf Picture an old, gothic cathedral. Now, lift your eyes to the edges of the eaves and the peaks of the ridgelines. Look carefully and you're likely to spot one or more creatures clinging to the side of the building or balancing atop a spire. Gargoyles! These staring, startling, sometimes leering creatures have gazed down at us for centuries. Though they were most popular during the Middle Ages, many gargoyles endure today. And stonemasons and artists continue to embrace the craft and create new versions for our viewing pleasure. Have you ever wondered why gargoyles were created, who made them and how they got there? Many cultures throughout history have produced sculptures of fantastic creatures, figures that stir our imaginations, just as they stirred the imaginations of the artists and craftspeople who envisioned them. "Gargoyles" takes you on a journey into a mysterious world, through bestiaries and traveling menageries, past grotesques and chimeras, through medieval cities and guilds and into huge stone buildings. Gargoyles are an embodiment of form and function - serving a clear architectural purpose but, also, symbolically important. Whether warding off evil, frightening away fear or showcasing human foibles, when a gargoyle was placed on a building, people noticed. "Gargoyles" will introduce you to stone faces, doom stones, drinking heads, Sheila na gigs, hagodays and other stony members of the gargoyle family. In doing so, the book delves into historic models of arcane craftsmanship and architecture, considering the reasons for gargoyles coming into being and hearing the legends of the gargoyle, both mythic and modern. It, also, covers the emergence of stone creatures into popular culture. For modern magick users, "Gargoyles" explores the role of the gargoyle in magickal practice, including gargoyle use in elemental correspondences, stone magick, protection, warding, egregores, talismans, animal associations, ritual and spell work.
