This is soooo easy .... a fancy gutter shaped like a ??? unknown flying creature. Keeps the evil spirits away long with the water lol. Best ones on Notre Dame in Paris.

Best to keep your hard hat on as they often fall off the cathedral. They are stashed in the basement.

A gargoyle are those statues which usually are placed in higher walls outside a church.  They are not the saints, but rather look like little demons.
