NAME ORIGIN
    Rock is relatively hard, naturally formed mineral or stone. The word comes from the Vulgar Latin word rocca. A gargoyle is a water spout in the form of a grotesque creature projecting from a gutter to carry rainwater clear of the wall, or any ornamental figure common in architecture. The word comes from the French gargouille meaning "throat, waterspout".
