The legendary gargoyles and chimeras of Notre-Dame de Paris welcome visitors to Paris. This cathedral is considered to be one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture. Its famous gargoyles were designed for water-run off. By climbing several narrow spiral staircases of the cathedral, one can view these gargoyles in close quarters as well as see spectacular views of Paris.

While gargoyles are often associated with Gothic architecture they actually date back to the architecture of Ancient Egypt, when gargoyles were typically in the form of a lion’s head. Greek temples also had lion mouthed water spouts. The 39 remaining lion-headed water spouts of the Temple of Zeus are a fine example of gargoyles.

Gargoyles and chimeras are said to frighten off and protect those that it guards from evil or harmful spirits. Thus our Davide lion cabinet pull will serve its owner not only as a beautiful bespoke cabinet pull but also as a guardian.
