Grotesques

Spotted on gate posts during our walk in Branston today.
I wonder who or what they symbolise.

How interesting and so differently worn, were they in the same place? I think they are great.

Very interesting. How big are these things? Judging by the greenery i see on the right one, I'd say about 20 or 30 cm high?

@wakelys @bubblequeen @carole_sandford @larrysphotos @onewing @ludwigsdiana @lmsa @koalagardens @jamibann @haskar Thank you. Friends we were with explained the difference between gargoyles and grotesques. I hadn’t realised they were a thing!

@pattyblue @miss_molly @monikozi Thank you. They were about 50 cm tall and on either side of a gated driveway to a house. I think the one on the right had survived better because it was protected by a large bush.
