Darth Vader on the Washington National Cathedral

IO9 reported (and apparently not as an April Fools joke) that Darth Vader’s helmet is one of several unexpected images sculpted on the Washington National Cathedral.

To me it makes perfect sense that Darth Vader should be depicted on a cathedral – the story of Anakin Skywalker is about redemption more than anything else!
