WHY THE GARGOYLE

Our first home was in the landmark Kittredge Building in downtown Denver.  Completed in 1891, the building’s granite and rhyolite stone exterior is adorned with elaborate carvings of gargoyles.  In medieval usage, the term gargoyle was applied to elaborately carved ornamental water spouts designed to discharge rainwater at a distance from the foundation of a building.  The gargoyle’s form also was said to scare off evil spirits and they came to symbolize protection.  It is this second meaning that makes the gargoyle a fitting representation for the work Reilly Pozner does for its clients.
