Avebury Stone #10 Front Side Photograph by Andis Kaulins
For starters.... and to flex your creative muscles.... Could the whole top half of the stone be seen as the crowned head of a king? also a couple? The whole top half of the stone projects out over the bottom half -- is that "line" intentional? Do you see the leg and foot in the lower half? What is that at the top of the leg? or bottom left corner? Could one envision the large head of a whale in the lower right half (Physeter macrocephalus)?

Have fun! and learn thereby to better understand our ancient human ancestors!
Admin: It appears as if there is a back and forth dialogue between two posters, the second posting is treated as a reply, which it does not have to be. It could be a new unrelated posting.

Admin: I am doing some experimenting with the ProBoards functions. That accounts for the following Shoutbox postings. It is not intended as a "reply" to anyone so I am interested as to how ProBoards treats this ShoutBox posting, since only a reply option is shown

eddie: Andis, In your email of Aug 10, "Proto-European prehistoric peoples wished to 'fill' stones with life, for the ancients were puzzles that 'stones did not grow' as other things in nature did." That is a very interesting idea. How did you develop? Tks,
