WOULDN'T YOU LIKE TO BE A GARGOYLE, TOO?
Tara Dix. U.S. Catholic. Chicago: Feb 2006.Vol.71, Iss. 2; pg. 10

Many people have their names carved into bricks or stones of buildings to commemorate their donations to its construction, but at St. Paul's Anglican Cathedral in Melbourne, Australia you can actually have your face carved into the edifice-as a gargoyle! Dean of Melbourne, David Richardson, told The Daily Telegraph that he hopes people will see it as a way to achieve a sort of immortality.

"People aged 60 would like to say to their grandchildren, 'Up there is your grandfather carved in stone,' " he said. One can only hope the grandchildren will not be permanently terrified.
