Read on to learn more about the father of all Gothic gargoyle statues What is a Notre Dame Gargoyle? "Gargoyle" comes from the Old French "gargouille" and the Late Latin "gurgulio," both meaning throat. Medieval gargoyles are just that - ornate, "throaty" drainpipes! Most rooftop chimera statues are designed with a passageway inside to direct rainwater out through the gargoyle's throat and away from the building. The first gargoyle figurines were carved more than 4,000 years ago in ancient Egypt, Rome and Greece. Gargoyle statues were often grotesque animals carved from stone, iron or lead, and were usually depicted ready to leap or take flight. Gargoyle figurines have long represented evil and mischief, leading the Catholic Church to commission the appointment of gargoyle statues on cathedral rooftops in an effort to encourage its largely illiterate congregants to display proper church behavior.
