A carved or formed statue, grotesque, or chimera depicting a scholar or other highly esteemed individual in the academic world. Schargoyles are placed near the eaves of a library (or any other structures of advanced learning) to convey knowledge off the roof and away from the sides of the building. They have also been used as decoration in many esteemed universities.
The schargoyle kept a stony vigil from the roof of the library.
Brad would often stop to glance at the many schargoyles that perched high above on their learned precipices.
