Fifteenth Century Architecture - NSFW



As mentioned in the title, this post is not safe for work, but that part is reserved for the bottom if you want to sneak a peak. I just found this on Twitter a few minutes ago.

In case you can't read the print, Black Pigeon Speaks typed, "People didn't have social media in the 15th century, so it would appear that they used gargoyles to troll their local village." What dedication to serving cold revenge!

See That Little Arrow Over the Roof, Several Stories Up?

That's Craftsmanship!

I can only guess this was found during restoration. What do you think?

  1. I'm thinking perhaps someone got cuckolded or swindled or... any of a million evils people commit. ~shakes head~ Alas, I imagine the story is lost to history.

  3. Just goes to prove that every age had their "trolls". We just express them differently today.

  5. Interesting~ I was not aware of this ~Gargoyles are carved stone creatures known as grotesques. Often made of granite, they serve an important purpose in architecture. Other than providing interesting decoration for buildings, they contain spouts that direct water away from the sides of buildings.~ I just thought they were put on the bldg to protect it!

    1. Have you even seen the movie "The Crow"? The end shows a gargoyle put to good use. Heh... It's a wicked cool romantic horror move.

    1. Yes! Hahahaha... The only thing is that it's so high off the ground I don't know who would have noticed back then. That, to me, is most amazing of all. Be well! I appreciate your comments.
