The arch or stones above his hair. A mouth looking slightly worried and a box body made of the door. I can even see the drain cover as a single wheel on which he balances and moves around. All signs of watching too much science fiction, no doubt.

The glow from his eyes spreads to the surrounding stonework to the left the dressed stones are neatly constructed and each stone is clearly defined.
