This is the Stonegate Devil, a famous icon in York, England. Stonegate (streets are called gates, gates are called bars and bars are called pubs in York - did you follow that?) was well known for its bookshops and printers in the 1500s. Number 33, where the devil sits by the door, was the home of a printer. The devil served as a reminder "printer's devils" were the boys who carried the hot metal type for the printer. Apparently the devil got bumped by a truck fairly recently and had to be restored. This site shows him with a different paint job than my picture and gives some insight into the weirdness of York. it's a great city and is my second choice for a place to live besides Edinburgh.
