Medieval Stone Sculpture for sale

The medieval mason was not a monk but a highly skilled craftsman who combined the roles of architect, builder, craftsman, designer and engineer. Using only a set of compasses, a set-square and a staff or rope marked off in halves, thirds, and fifths, the mason was able to construct some of the most amazing structures ever built. The stone carvings offered here are Gargoyle final decorations, worked by eye, to create the fabulous and artistic features which decorated medieval ecclesiastical buildings. The Medieval Stone Gargoyles found here originally adorned medieval churches and other high status buildings.
