Gargoyles guarding

Apparently, stone cutters were brought in to carve the Gothic gargoyles and grotesques as well as other intricate ornamentation from the limestone and rock at the Biltmore Estate.  Gargoyles and grotesques are commonly seen on the castles of Europe, put there to ward off evil-doers.

Lastly, I will feature a selection of wall fountains.
