"That's not true! That's impossible!"

"Search the cathedral, Luke. You know it to be true."


The Epsicopal National Cathedral that is. Which, I've just discovered, features a grotesque of none other than Darth Vader high atop one of the west towers.

I'm torn on this one ... certainly all manner of mythical beasts has graced (if that's the word) the exteriors of Gothic cathedrals. Is this a natural extension of the use of myth in sacred architecture, or just ... strange? Will it seem perfectly natural in a few hundred years?
