Charming grotesque with gaping toothed mouth, wide open staring eyes and pointed, batlike ears. Monsters like these were placed on the outside walls of houses and churches in order to chase away evil spirits. They may also have been a warning to onlooking sinners that unpleasant things were awaiting for them in the future if they did not repent.
Granite. Wear, losses (chin and lower teeth). Not fixed on stand. Stand optional. Hole in base from previous, older stand. Dimensions: 19x16x17cm
