Photo: ‘Alien’ Xenomorph On 13th Century Scottish Abbey
  |  @   |  

What would you think if you visited a 13th century Scottish abbey, and among the many gargoyles, you spotted a xenomorph, the terrifying other worldly creatures from the Alien movie franchise?

Paisley Abbey was founded in the year 1245, so seeing a xenomorph gargoyle could be very much intriguing and a little bit scary. But, as it turns out, there were also some more renovations done in the ’90s, which makes slightly more sense.

You can check out an image of the xenomorph gargoyle, as well as a video discussing the abbey’s gargoyles below.

Reverend Alan Birss, the minister of Paisley Abbey, cleared up any confusion after the alien gargoyle was reported by places like the BBC. He thinks the stonemasons who did the work were simply having a little fun.

Still, pretty cool.
