How Darth Vader Ended Up On The Washington National Cathedral



It seems a bit odd that a sculpture of Darth Vader's helmet would reside atop the Washington National Cathedral, but quirky little juxtapositions like this one make the world a fun and colorful place.

Here's how Darth found his way on to the Cathedral:
In the 1980s the Cathedral, with National Geographic World magazine, sponsored a competition for children to design decorative sculpture for the Cathedral. The third-place winner was Christopher Rader of Kearney, Nebraska who submitted a drawing of this futuristic representation of evil. Darth Vader was placed on the northwest tower with the other winning designs: a raccoon, a girl with pigtails and braces and a man with large teeth and an umbrella.

I wonder how many pigeons stone Darth has killed with his psychic choke hold?
