How to explain this collection of craggy characters?! Well my kids decided that their Dad needed some gargoyles to counter balance the flurry of angelic images that adorn our home. As the collection grew it became apparent these guys all had distinct personalities.


The title refers to "congress" as defined as a gathering. If it reminds you of some other Congress... well, so be it.
