Gargoyles And Grotesques

Does anyone know of any incredible gargoyles / grotesgues around the world?
Just came across this bizarre photo of a Darth Vader one that sits on Washington National Cathedral.

And there's the obvious choice, the Notre Dame de Paris gargoyles.

House with Chimaeras in Kyiv is world famous for the demons that "guard" it.

There are some jerky monkeys on the brick expressionist highrise (from 1924) Hansahochhaus in Cologne, like out of the zoo



This is the Hansahochhaus. Momentarily they build a 4-stars-hotel inside the lower floors, that gonna open next year.
