Default Architecture - Looks familiar

One of my friends took this picture at the weekend at Paisley Abbey in Scotland. It looks kinda familiar.

That's cool.

It would be interesting to find out what year the gargoyle was added. It's base stone looks newer than the stone above and below it.

From talking to my friend I think it was in the 90's.

If you look at other gargoyles on the side of the building, the alien is definitely a recent introduction. It doesn't have the same buildup of moss and other sediments that the other ones do.

I wonder what people will make of the alien gargoyle in a hundred years?

Couldn't help but check, and there is stuff about it from a while ago. Very strange choice indeed, but neat.
