It is a very elaborate pigeon roost, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Didn't see many of them around, Ray - they probably prefer less cluttered sites smile Reminds me of pictures of Indian temple sculptures.
Oh my goodness - the detail is amazing!
Tom Wilson: Fantastic, eh?

This must have been carved in segments then stuck together - terrific stuff!
Tom Wilson: Yes, I think that is the way it is generally done.
So much good detail to view here.
Tom Wilson: Stunning stuff, isn't it?
I find it hard to contemplate the work involved in carving this Tom.
Tom Wilson: Amazing number of man-hours must have gone into it.

Intricate and it looks clean and well preserved.
Tom Wilson: The Lisbon air is pretty clean and this is beside the river, not so very far from the sea, so there's never anything approaching smog!
It's unbelievable work isn't it!
Tom Wilson: It is indeed!
I can imagine this as almost someone's life's work Tom
Tom Wilson: They must have had a huge number of masons!
It must have taken ages to carve all this.
Tom Wilson: And/or lots of masons.
