An explanation emerges for how the 12th century Paisley Abbey in Scotland could feature a gargoyle out of the film "Alien"

quote [ At first, you’d think that it must be a coincidence of some sort, or that it is the original blueprint from which the Swiss artist H. R. Giger drew his inspiration. Such speculations arose when this time discrepancy was first noted by the media in 2013. ]

I could have told them that from the get go.

The Washington National Cathedral has a Darth Vader gargoyle as well.

Sounds like they'll be getting a Cease and Desist letter from Disney before long.

Yep. It's pretty obvious that that carving hasn't been sitting in the rain for eight hundred years.

Looks less like the traditional gargoyle and more like they hunted the last remaining Vader and put it up as a trophy.

That's what happens when you go Ludicrous Speed.

The color of the helmet is a nice touch.

The child's hands holding the helmet add to the creepiness factor

Well it was a child who won the gagoyle drawing contest in 1987(?)
