Gargoyles / Grotesques

I'm putting these together since if you take a gander at Google images, you'll find photos of both under both topics.

In architecture, a Grotesque (aka a Chimera) is a carved figure made of stone.  It is different from a Gargoyle, which is a water spout.  Either way - they are both very fantastical.  Some are very scary and others very whimsical.

This is mine. 
It was last year's Mother's day gift from my family. 
His name is Gary.
