The Scholar

This is one of the gargoyles found over the entrance in yesterday's pic of Central Technical school. The stonemasons were given free reign to design the gargoyles and this one they chose to do as a scholar. Suitable for the school.

Hello,

What a cute gargoyle, a scholar is suitable for the school.
I like it! Take care! Wishing you a happy day!

A very cute gargoyle. I wonder if anybody wears a mortar-board and gown these days. I remember one or two of the oldest teachers wore them when I started secondary school back in 1964, but they'd all retired by the time I left seven years later.

...gargoyles were once a fixture of building's architecture.

He doesn't look very happy. I am sure the students have already named him for their least favorite teacher!

An older student...

That is a fine looking bit of sculpture. Schools should have scholars and academic freedom to do their research.

He looks like he's scheming.

The stonemasons have hidden talents. This gargoyle is one of them.

I vote for more free reign for construction professionals. Great cute gargoyle.
