Mystery sculptures in ancient temples

Mystery Astronaut Carving in Salamanca, Spain

Inside the splendid Ieronimus Cathedral, built by Episcope de Salamanca in 1102 A.D., among the fascinating carvings of mythical animals and saints, we find - NASA Astronaut...
Maybe they entered some time portal while on the Moon, and ended up scaring medieval builders in Spain? Probably just a modern addition by the mischievous restoration team.

Another seriously out-of-time figure in deeply ancient surroundings:

David Beckham in a Buddhist temple in Bangkok

Yes, you heard right. The stylish soccer superstar now graces the intricate carvings in the holy place. Apparently, according to this page, the statue was installed at the temple in 1998 as part of the World Cup celebrations by Thai sculptor Thongruang Haemhod. Shoot, and I thought that David decided to join the saint league.

The second picture from Salamanca, Spain is not from the cathedral but from the old university facade. The university facade is also well known for its hidden image of a frog sitting on a skull, said to give good luck to students on their finals if they were able to locate it.
