|Description ||Inverted and adjusted photo from 1993 when the site was not painted. The glacially smoothened granite surface is partly well preserved here. To give an idea of the scale: Length of the riders is 27cm - 36cm . One horse is unfinished (unfinished carvings occur very often). Anthropomorph upper left in adoring posture with undulating line in front. Possibly similar to more obvious carvings of humans with snakes. |

| Bedrocks' glacial striations are visible running from top to bottom. The shape at lower left picture edge is a damage of the surface. |
| Nice to compare your 1993 photo with my recent photos of this site Martin. |

| Yes. As it seems they unfortunately painted it in an intense white nowadays making any details of the carvings invisible. So I took these documentation from archive. Seems it is not that well appreciated ;) |
