Worship at the Altar of Geekiness With the Help of These Sci-Fi Gargoyles



There’s a chapel in France where the gargoyles are super-geeky. No, I’m not talking about this kind of geeky gargoyle. I mean that some architectural spirit animal of mine made gargoyles inspired by geeky movies and TV.

If you like Alien and Gremlins and are somewhat macabre and inclined to matrimony, I think I’ve found the perfect place for you to get hitched.

    Excellent! But why does the Xenomorph have eyes?

    I hate to be a grammar nazi, but most of those aren’t gargoyles, they’re grotesques. They are only a gargoyle if they have a spout for water to flow through.

    The story behind this is that this XVth century chapel needed a repair and all the gargoyles and grotesques had been destroyed in some way or another… And there is only one picture of the original ones. A large shot of the chapel itself. It then has been decided to use modern day iconography to replaces the sculptures.

    And Wikipedia is perfectly right about the success of UFO Robot Grendizer in France. We still long for a sequel to Goldorak…
