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.
