Guardian gargoyle

This little fellow guards the upper reaches of St. Stephen Church (follow this link for more incredible photos) in New Orleans. Seems to be pretty happy about it. I love this church because of all this ornamentation -- the corner stone for this spacious old church was laid in 1871. Maybe I need a guard gargoyle.

I like these things. I'm not sure why but just do. Remember the trolls? I liked those too.
