|Description ||Two of the decorated stones around the burial area.|
|They have got to be performing seals at the bottom!|
| Fake surely?|

| I assume you are not familiar with bronze age rock art in Scandinavia aren't you. Of course the visibility of the carvings is enhanced with red colour. |
| Not too fanciful to suggest they are seals, a whale, a boar and a wolf. It could be the number of animals killed by this hunter, which makes the figures at the top victims as well. If, as I suspect the presence of a dagger on the figure on the chariot denotes a male not yet fully grown to wear the full sword of the adults., he may well have died young. Or as a boy racer?|
