French black plague era hand-carved stone gargoyle

Regular price $4,500.00 $0.00

Feast your eyes on this 14th century French masterpiece of medieval craftsmanship. Notice the grotesque asymmetry of the head, the protruding spine, and the feeble-looking wings. Centuries of wear and discoloration have only added to this object's foreboding aura.

This rare specimen came from a collector who bought it from the Église Saint-Théodore in Marseille, France. The piece resided in the church museum for over a hundred years before being sold in the 1970s.

Approximately 3.5 x 7.5 x 4 inches. Weighs 3.78 pounds.
