jim henson, time traveller?

A chapel in the Monastery of Batalha remains unfinished; the beginnings of ornate pillars stretch hopefully toward an open sky, and lichen dots the chapel's stone in beautiful shades of green.

In an odd contrast to the intricate leafy vines and folds of fabric that dominate the chapel's structure, the crude faces of beasts appeared in nearly each corner of the bases of the lower pillars. It was as though Jim Henson had found the secret of time travel, and carved these peculiar creatures with great relish!

Master Yoda?
