'Gargoyle', Notre-dame (Paris)

What do you see when you look up to the top of the great cathedral of Notre Dame? You see monsters, half-man and half-beast. These demon looking creatures carved out of stone are called gargoyles.

I should note that these bigger statues, as the "gargoyles" from the eponymously titled 90's cartoon, are grotesques.  Gargoyles, as root association with "gargle" hints, spout water; one can be seen center left, at the appropriate level.
