|Description ||Werpeloh Stone Circle
Constructed and build by Padre Matthäus in 2002.
There are 2 circles. The inner circle with a center-stone and the outer circle with stones on an earth wall.
The center stone may be an old sacrifice or altar stone with optical lines-of-sight. This stone were found at earthworks.
Padre Mattäus believes that this optical lines-of-sight connect this stone with the many hunebeds around this location.
The central stone has lines for sunrise and sunset at the summer-solstice, too.
Werpeloh Stone Circle is build with the knowlegde and symbolism of nordic pagan religion but appointed by christian thinking to impart holistic God-understanding.
In the west-stone a small alcove was included which contains a Black Madonna and amethysts. In christian body of thought is the Virgin Mother origin of life, the Padre means: "Life evolves from the energy of sun through a higher instance".
The amathysts catches as a symbol for origin of life the sunbeams of the rising sun.|
|Forgot - the stone circle has a diameter of 32m. The centerstone is an ancient stone and nearly on its original position. it was found 3km away. So - maybe "modern construction" is the right section, but ancient, too.
