Spaceman Carving Found on a 16th Century Cathedral!

Amidst intricate carvings of mythical animals and saints, there is an unusual figure in the wall of the New Cathedral in Salamanca, Spain: an astronaut!

Well ... actually the spaceman figure was put in by workers when the Cathedral was renovated in recent years. (BTW, the "New" Cathedral was built in the 16th-18th century)
