Chimerae are often described as gargoyles, although the term gargoyle technically refers to figures carved specifically as terminations to spouts which convey water away from the sides of the Middle Ages, the term babewyn was used to refer to both gargoyles and chimerae.

Grotesque, sensual and erotic: The Art of Aubrey Beardsley "Anima naturaliter pagana, Aubrey Beardsley ended a long career, at the age of twenty-six, in the arms of the Church," noted British poet, critic and magazine editor Arthur Symons wrote in the original edition of The Art of Aubrey Beardsley.
