The Hypnotist gargoyle, wall art sculpture, Chicago Gothic, Halloween horror, carved stone casting, architectural detail, Richard Chalifour by CastShadows

The Hypnotist was one of my very first gargoyle creations!
He was inspired by examples of architectural elements from the city of Chicago. Terra Cotta sculpture was just starting to be used due to the Great Fire, and these kiln fired building ornaments were made to look like limestone carvings, but at a fraction of the cost. Quicker to make, less costly & fire proof made this type of ornament ideal for a modern city, way back in the early 1900’s.

Old Limestone finish shown.
Being applied by hand, variations in the finish such as contrast or color can occur, if you would like, you can make requests in “Notes to the Seller” as to how you would prefer your finish, such as lighter or darker than shown in photos, etc.

It’s the perfect accessory for any Gothic garden or Renaissance room.
Handmade from my original sculpture, created in 1993, and finished to have the look of Old Limestone, giving the feel that it’s a piece of architectural salvage.

Quality is one my main goals, and this sculpture is cast in a very strong polymer modified gypsum cement with stone aggregates. It has the feel and strength of stone. It has a recessed hanger so that it hangs flat on the wall.
Old Limestone finish, for interior and exterior use.

The sculpture measures approximately 9 1/2″ high by 81/2″ wide by 3 1/2 ” deep. Weighs about 4. lbs

Shipping cost for sending international have gone up recently with this piece, it is a heavier item at over 4.lbs in the box.

Your “Hypnotist” will ship in a recycled box, ready for giving or the perfect treat for yourself.
