Architectural ornaments featuring mythical or grotesque figures for decorative purposes are known as chimerae. Decorative figures of the 15th century grotesque style are meant to evoke a feeling of uncomfortable bizarreness as well as sympathetic pity. Grotesque carved forms and other stone heads were commonly used in in Gothic style buildings. This piece would have likely served as a portion of the top of a capital on a column, or the keystone at the center of an arch. The solid granite could easily withstand the outdoors, so place this outside an entrance, or repurpose it into a table, shelf, or seat base.
