My Shadow Shot Sunday photo is of a rather frightening looking gargoyle that was spotted by my eagle eyed boyfriend in a mall in Melbourne. Actually, I think it may be the devil! I'm sorry I didn't get a better shot of him now.
...and it's wrong of me to call him a gargoyle because a true gargoyle has a water spout. To be thoroughly technical about it he is a non-waterspout grotesque! More specifically he is a chimera non-waterspout grotesque. A chimera is a figure that is a mixture of beasts. This one is a half goaty thing and a man? I'm not quite sure. The chimera grotesques were put atop buildings to warn people about the dangers of becoming complacent about the devil.
