|Description ||One of 4 Statue Menhir at Musee D'Archeologie in Saint-Germain en Lay near Paris. |
Taken from Le Mas D'Azain in Averyron.
About 1 Meter tall. All show rudimentary arms, faces and breast as well as very distinct belts.
|Good to see these Statue Menhirs Alex. These lovely stones from southern France were amongst the highlights of my travels last year. One day I will gat round to adding many more pictures and details of them. I now have a book which lists and gives details of the 112 known (in 1994 - there are more now) Rouerge statue menhirs, and so at some point in the dim future might be able to get a site page up for each of them. But I still feel we need a new site type for them to belong to. |
Can you get a site page up for the museum ?
| I missed seeing this and the other menhirs when I visited the museum a couple of years ago. There is a site page for the museum now, but I am loath to move this photo there in case the menhir has been moved to another museum as sometimes happens with items taken from their original region.|
