We could clearly see that this huge bronze dragon gargoyle statue looks terrifying. And, the overall image of the gargoyle sculpture really grabs attention. Our artist completely cast the gargoyle’s hideous facial expressions. Moreover, this gargoyle also has strong muscles. Our artists also cast the most vividly. Apparently, this gargoyle could serve as the patron saint of the house. Of course, he is also very suitable to be placed in the jungle.
Origin of Gargoyle:
First of all, we all know that gargoyles are made up of many animals. Generally speaking, gargoyles often appear on Gothic buildings. These monsters, whether real or dreamy, are very grotesque and ironic in appearance. Of course, these gargoyle sculptures have an actual architectural function. They could drain the roof of a church.
Create Gothic Architecture:
During the last phase of Romanesque architecture, during the 11th and 12th centuries, gargoyle sculpture achieved great success. The Roman style is characterized by its Roman and Germanic elements, mixed with Byzantine, Islamic, and Armenian influences. But it was during this era that traces of Gothic began to appear. Also, many real and fantastic animals are included in Gothic architecture. Then the gargoyle sculptures are decorated in different building corners and in the gaps of the building structure.
Are Gargoyles Dragons?
First of all, Many early gargoyles depicted some version of dragons, especially in France. In addition to serving as spouts for water, these gargoyles’ open mouths have the terrifying destructive power of the legendary beasts. And the gargoyle reminds the world of the need for the protection of the church. Therefore, gargoyle sculptures appear in church buildings. The image of the gargoyle has a variety of animal compositions. And animals such as lambs, fish, doves, eagles, bulls, and lions all have great symbolism inside the church.
Therefore, we often choose gargoyle sculptures when decorating buildings. Especially the church would have many mystical animals such as griffins, monsters, dragons, and basilisks. The animals were designed to be deliberately grotesque and satirical. Then the gargoyle is just a typical sculpture subject, and it satisfies people’s imagination and needs. And, the gargoyle’s fantastic and diabolical appearance gave the sculptor freedom. Therefore, artists are free to use their imaginations under the different emotions of the gargoyle. In the end, grotesque sculptures are formed to express the works that the artists want.
Using the Traditional Lost Wax Method:
YouFine casts dragon gargoyle statues using the traditional lost wax method. Especially our artists are very good at casting animal and monster sculptures. And, during the casting process, our artists use a silica sol technique. Therefore, these sculptures do not appear as white spots in an outdoor setting. Because, once a white spot appears in the sculpture, it would crack. Obviously, such a sculpture would not only reduce the service life but also affect the aesthetics of the sculpture. Well, no doubt none of these things would happen to YouFine’s gargoyle sculptures.
Also, our artists use chemical coloring. Therefore, YouFine large gargoyle sculpture color is very natural and beautiful. If you customize this gargoyle sculpture, please contact us immediately. YouFine has a ready-made clay model that you could use for free.
