Detest the Rest Gargoyle Statue
I bought two!
I bought two of these to guard my front door. They are so adorable in an angry gargoyle sort of way. Well made. I am very happy with my purchase.

Cute, hefty, good size
My boy fell in love with gargoyles on a European trip and wanted a "real" one for his room. I searched everywhere for a stone gargoyle with no luck. I "settled for" this resin one and was pleasantly surprised. The resin looks (and almost feels) quite stone-like, and has a good heft. The statue is a good size. He's currently inside on a high shelf and looks great. He's a cute guy, just grouchy enough to pass for a real castle grotesque but not too creepy-scary for a living room or bedroom.

Aloysius and Gogarty
We purchased Detest the Rest and Emmett. They were a compliment to each other so much they were named Aloysius and Gogarty (that's Aloysius Gogarty from Brining Up Baby a screwball comedy film in 1938).
The large Gaston was also purchased and hangs on the second floor railing. I took a small section of decorative chains of similar color and attached to the railing, which complimented Gaston marvelously.
And finally above Gaston is a Winged Angel (Resting Grace Sitting Angel) on a grandfather clock. (In the pics, also used as props for Photoshop experiment.)
All recommended items. And on my wish list is the "Neptune's Horses of the Sea Sculptural Wall Frieze"

Only better if alive and on my side...
Took quite a bit of searching to find, but "Detest's " expression wonderfully summarizes my view of "the world" (and reaction to it by and large), in just one glance. Was going to place him outside by the door to frighten away visitors, but liked him so much gave him a cozy place indoors.
