This gargoyle observes man's true nature from the rooftops. In times of prevailing evil in the world, the gargoyle breathes a sigh of cleansing rain.
In architecture, a gargoyle is a carved stone grotesque with a spout designed to convey water from a roof and away from the side of a building, thereby preventing rainwater from running down masonry walls and eroding the mortar between. The term originates from the French gargouille, which in English is likely to mean "throat" or is otherwise known as the "gullet"; cf. Latingurgulio, gula, gargula ("gullet" or "throat") and similar words derived from the root gar, "to swallow", which represented the gurgling sound of water.
Gargoyles are also said to frighten off and protect those that it guards, such as a church, from any evil or harmful spirits.
