The unholy rood.

by Feòrag

The Scottish Parliament building is more than just an overdue means of lining developers' pockets, its location is full of mystical symbolism according to a book read by Simon Pia:

After a chapter on Rosslyn Chapel, the author seamlessly turns his attention to the new Holyrood Parliament, pointing out that David I founded the nearby Abbey in 1128, having been rescued by divine intervention from a rampaging deer.
He then asks the obvious question: Is it simply coincidence that Scotland's new parliament is being built in the same mystical location?
Apparently, some people have commented that the building looks like the all-seeing eye of the god Horus, a favoured magic motif of the ancient Egyptians.
