Orlandi Statue Little Dedo The Notre Dame Gargoyle Fiber Stone Sculpture Yard Art

Dedo is a small gargoyle with pointy ears and human-like feet on the Notre Dame Cathedral.

When the cathedral was built in 1160, a nun from a tiny convent in Provence who disliked the menacing gargoyles that were put on top of the building to ward off evil spirits, disguised herself as a workman, gained entrance to the work site and quickly carved the sculpture from a small block before placing it on the highest roof.

The gargoyle was undiscovered for centuries until a small boy, lost in the labyrinthine structure, stumbled off a ledge and rolled down a roof into the arms of the gargoyle. Since its rediscovery, the creature has been affectionately known as Little Dedo, the gargoyle with the crossed toes.

This gargoyle garden statue will command attention in any outdoor setting. Crafted of Fiber Stone for a quality look that will withstand the elements. Fiber Stone is fiberglass with a mixture of sand and stones cast into the surface followed by a hand painted finish to give the appearance of aged stone. Since it is reinforced with a fiberglass backing, the statue remains light-weight and less fragile than concrete. Each item is finished by artists and is original artwork, therefore no two are identical.

Available in five finishes:
  • White Moss (white wash with hints of moss)(shown)
  • Sandstone (yellow ocre with revealed earth tones)
  • Verde (rich green with a brown wash) 
  • Cathedral White (white with a brown wash)
  • Soot (black wash over natural stone)
  • Dimensions: 8"x9"x9"H
  • This is a made to order item, please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery; sorry... no returns on made-to-order items.

    It is perfect!
    Reviewed by:Jane from Beverly, MA on November 8, 2011
    The Dedo arrived safe and sound and it is perfect! He is a replacement for one I purchased for my husband almost twenty years ago and it has lived in our garden ever since. Through the years our Dedo has slowly deteriorated which we were so sad to see. This will be a great surprise to have Dedo whole again! Thank you!

    Love It!
    Reviewed by:Marilyn M from New Braunfels, TX on August 30, 2011
    I ordered the Dedo gargoyle for a young boy and everyone just loved it. He uses the gagoyle for protection and has slept better since he got it. The only thing that was frustrating was that it took a month to get it. Otherwise, we were all very happy with the purchase.

    Bought as a Gift But Want It For Self
    Reviewed by:Shopper on August 24, 2011
    Rarely do I give a gift I would rather keep for myself, but I had to do the unselfish thing and give it as planned. But, it would look so cute in my yard among my other items. Hope friend appreciates my sacrifice.

    Much Better than Concrete
    Reviewed by:Shopper on August 23, 2011
    I've had concrete figurines in my yard, but this one is much more durable and long lasting. He's as adorable as he looks in the picture and I was happy with how quickly he arrived.

    Very Pleased

    Very pleased with the gargoyle statue, price and service provided. We were kept well informed of the progress of the order from start to finish.

    Better Than Expected

    Although it took longer than I expected, it was worth the wait. It is better than I expected. Really beautiful! Thank you.

    Love them! We ordered the Dedo in 2 different colors as the old concrete one we had finally cracked beyond repair – these new ones should hold up much better.

    ABOUT COMBINED SHIPPING DISCOUNTS: Since our products are prepackaged prior to shipping and are in most cases limited to the USPS First Class Mail weight and size limits, we CANNOT offer a combined shipping discount for multiple different auctions. We primarily use USPS First Class Mail and UPS or FEDEX for larger items to save the customer shipping fees and to decrease delivery times.  Some of our auctions that allow for more than one quantity of a particular product, selectable within its auction page, will have a combined shipping discount automatically applied to the invoice at the point at which you pay via PayPal. These particular circumstances sometimes do require that the product(s) be shipped by USPS Parcel Post or USPS Priority mail at our discretion. Thanks for your understanding of these packaging and shipping limitations.  :)
