|Description ||Pierre Saint Julien is a 3.5 metre tall menhir, standing at the corner of Le Mans Cathedral.|
|In certain light, this stone takes on the appearance of a hooded and cloaked man standing beside the Cathedral.|
|The texture of that stone is so weird! Looks like the creature from Alien.|
|Fantastic stone Martyn! Another person-like stone to add to the collection! The 'drapes' are beautiful, and it must have been very special in its heyday... do they say whether it was brought here from a circle, or other ritual/ceremonial place? (It couldn't have been carved like that in more recent years, I suppose??)|
|The stone looked to have weathered like that naturally. It consists of a sort of hard layered sandstone type texture, and the lines around the stone are the edges of the different strata within the rock. It really is quite amazing.|
