LONDON: Visitors at a Nottinghamshire cathedral spotted a stone carving bearing a shocking uncanny resemblance to US President Donald Trump. The gargoyle is believed to be 700-year-old.
There are hundreds of strange and comical sculpted faces in the entrance to the old cathedral.
This Trump carving was snapped way before he became president but has recently caused quite a stir on social media.
Samira Ahmed shared a snap of the carved pulpitum last year with the caption: “Proof of #endofdays? Donald Trump was carved as a gargoyle in Southwell Minster 700 years ago…”
Reverend Canon Nigel Coates, who is based at the cathedral, told Nottingham Post: “We knew the head well, but none of us had spotted the Donald Trump hairstyle before. It’s really the hairstyle that is similar.
“He’s among the ‘lower level’ of heads, not among the kings and queens and merchants.
“So Donald Trump might be flattered that he features in 14th century Mansfield stone – but not that he’s not among the kings and queens,” he adds.
