John Parker - Gargoyle

John Parker – Gargoyle

Welded Steel

Pennsylvania sculptor Parker created “Gargoyle” to be “the gatekeeper of the park.” The sculpture reflects his interest in insects, dinosaurs and exotic flowers. By combining “nature with steel,” he gives a “heavy industrial material a loving animated presence.” The sculpture is made of weathered steel plate, cut, bent and bolted together.
