Random Strangeness...












These rather fetching motifs on a tomb in Carlisle cathedral look a bit like dinosaurs, don't they?


Well, I discovered them while going on a random wander around the internet here. The writer takes the Book of Genesis very seriously, and regards these 15th century brasses as a proof that dinosaurs and man co-existed. Yes, really.

Forget Dinosaurs , here is an amusing link to a video showing a tree hugger getting savaged by a Chimpanzee.

The one at the top looks like a dinosaur. I think the second one looks like a giant pig-like animal or something along those lines. That squat, rotund body. A peccary or something.

When were the drawings, etchings done? Any idea? Must have been long before Christianity and cathedrals. It's touching,isn't it, that our ancient ancestors were just as interested in the world, and as observant, as we are and just as interested in recording it.
