                            I'll have a go with this one. Not in the expectation of any votes, it is just a plain record shot and not a particularly good one, but because I think it is an interesting illustration of the theme and not really worth a thread in its own right.



                            Salamanca is a beautiful and ancient city in western Spain. It has always been a great cultural centre and is home to one of the world's oldest universities. A particular area of local art is stone carving, the university facade and the cathedral both have extensive and elaborately carved friezes (not sure if that is the technical term). The masons clearly have a sense of humour, the university facade features a skull with a frog sitting on it and the frog seems to have become an emblem of the city.

                            This photo is from the cathedral. Like anywhere the stonework needs maintenance from time to time. Clearly this bit was redone some time in the last 50 years, as the mason has added an astronaut in a full spacesuit in amongst all the religious iconography. I rather like the way that it has evolved to portray the heritage of a more recent era.

                            Although I wonder if in a few hundred years the gullible will suggest that aliens visited Salamanca when the cathedral was originally built......
