|Description ||Close-up of the cup with multiple rings (photo taken on February 2013).|
| Left & Right|
With a bit of agility, the thumb and fingers of the left hand can be placed upon the set of five protrubrances, the thumb is the largest. The 'thumb' is surrounded by four reasonably well defined rings with the rudiments of a fifth. a count of five. The right hand is similar in each respect.
Both sets of rings and protruberances have the smallest bump where the little finger would be placed. Try it yourself.
Maybe a larger image area would give a better idea, this is too close for a satisfactory grade of interpretation. Meanwhile my guess five digits on the left hand, five digits on the right hand, five days a week Sunday, Moonday, Wodensday, Thorsday and Freyrday, the first two weeks of the month, two more weeks a second count.
| The cups are not protuberances .There are four rings with no rudimenatry fifth .The stone has probably 34 cups . The width is over 1.2 m|
