Far Out Friday: ‘Alien’ Gargoyle Not So Alien After All

In Christine on The Scene by Christine McKellar

For all the alien enthusiasts out there, sadly this isn’t the original gargoyle at the Paisley Abbey in Scotland. Twelve of the 13 original 12th century gargoyles were refurbished in the 1990’s. The stone mason who took the liberty of redesigning this original must be a devoted fan of Ridley Scott’s epic “Alien” series. I know I am! I wonder what archaeologists and historians in the far future will think of this?
