Default a story

this chimera, o gargoyle as it is called was build into buildings and bridges, in order to guard the people around, as it was belived that they wil scare away evil spirits(in spite of their look, they were guardian figures).
Bridges were the most populated ones(by these statues), as they were\are belived to be passing points between two worlds, so a gathering point(just like cross roads) for spirits...you see, in the midlle ages, these figures were really necessary.

Except for this, i agree with manny..

Bogdan.
