Alien discovered at Paisley Abbey

A gargoyle on an historic 13th century abbey has caused a social media sensation with its resemblance to the monster from the Alien films. Reverend Alan Birss, minister at Paisley Abbey, said most of the gargoyles were replaced during a refurbishment in the early 1990s. He thinks that one of the stonemasons must have been having a bit of fun.

    The image may not be heritage, but stone mason using gargoyle to have some fun, that’s deeply traditional. A living tradition, one might say 🙂

    Or, for something less catatonic, more pentatonic, Wikipedia edits. Concept explained here.

    I like that you can click on a point, and get transported to the source; with a bit of 2001 Space Oddity-ness to it.
