Swedish gargoyle

Gargouille on the Tyska kyrkan (German church). The church was built around 1580, but the brick steeple and the copper covered spire with Neogothic gargoyles were completed in 1878.

 

Even though gargoyles, featuring grotesque animals, were indeed unusual in Swedish architectural history, today they are recognized as 'natural features' of the old town.

 

Stockholm, 2002.
