A teeny, tiny Dedo gargoyle statue

Need to buy a gift for someone who loves gargoyles but doesn't have a huge mansion, estate or cathedral with towers like Notre Dame? The Stone Griffin Gallery in Historic Downtown Campbell sells tiny Dedo gargoyles. He's one of the cutest gargoyles I've ever seen. I purchased one years ago and still have him perched on a shelf in my house.

As the story goes. . .

"It all began in Paris when the Notre Dame Cathedral was being built, rising majestically stone by stone towards the heavens. It was custom to top each structure with a menacing gargoyle, who protected the cathedral by warding off evil spirits.

Marie Therese, a nun from a tiny convent in Provence, disliked the evil-looking gargoyles on the new cathedral, sitting so close to the heavens.

Disguised as a man, she trekked on foot to Paris, entered the work site, and quickly carved a small block into a lovable, protective creature. She placed her creature, with its pointy ears and human-like feet, on the highest roof, visible only to God Himself.

It was undiscovered for centuries until a small boy, lost in the labyrinthine structure, stumbled off a ledge and rolled down a roof into the arms of the littlest gargoyle, perched quietly on a ledge. Since that time, Marie Therese's creature was affectionately known as Little Dedo, the gargoyle with the crossed toes."
