|Description ||Hajr al Mansub,The Mansub Stone. One may conjecture whether the groove was carved to deliberately create a phallic form or whether it was for some other, more prosaic, purpose.|
|Maybe the top part once had a face?|
|Interesting suggestion. Not sure that faces on menhirs is a common feature to be found in Jordan but if the Sardinian statue menhirs are anything to go by a face would also have been accompanied by other anatomical features, particularly the shoulders. They are absent here although this only reduces the possibility of a face, not rule it out.|
|Dont know that I should say this, Oh go on then.... Would that be a one eyed face ?|
|the locattion is :close to Al-Mureghat/Zerka Ma'in
