The Stryge (usually transliterated as the vampire) is the name of a sculpture, designed by Eugène Viollet-le-Duc and sculpted by the little-known Victor-Joseph Pyanet. It is part of the Galerie des chimères series of chimera on the Notre Dame de Paris cathedral. It is also the title of famous print of the sculpture by Charles Méryon, first published in 1853.
