|Description ||This huge dramatic stone in the south of Duloe circle was constantly haunting me as I surveyed and dowsed this lovely circle (why only 3 for ambience?) one sunny early evening at the end of May 2005. I was convinced someone else was there, just out of the corner of my eye, but it was the almost-human shape of this stone - like some kind of ancient priest in a billowing robe! In the left half of this double pic, where 'he''s facing us, you can almost decipher a face and headdress too. On the right side, he's looking towards the pyramid-shaped tower of Duloe church.|
No wonder there are so many legends about people being turned to stone attached to these circles!
| I went there on Tuesday with JackME, and noticed that there is a bird shape (like the curved 'V' you'd draw to indicate a bird flying) on his chest! Unless 'he' is a lady, and that is her decolletage?! It's at the South of the circle, facing outwards, by the way.|
| for a stone that looks like a cloaked figure, you really want to try this one|
| I've noticed in some of Pete Glastonbury's wonderful pictures of Avebury, especially the night and evening ones, a couple of stones that look like figures, as if they were spirits taking the guise of stones in order to watch over the place day and night. (Nothing wrong with a little fancy.)|
