The face in Lynn’s photo is not easy at all to spot unless you know where to look. As you may know Vagli’s life began as a watch tower over 600 years ago and the mysterious face carved from one of the corner stones has certainly been looking down over all the folk passing the watch tower from the beginning and now keeps a vigilant eye on our owners. 

The face must have been carved by some shamanic craftsman who probably wanted to symbolize the protection given to Pierle Castle. Unfortunately, the words engraved below the head and snake, which would have probably told us more about that shamanic, mysterious sculpture, have eroded. This certainly enhances the mystery why it faces North”.
