|Description ||A 4m high standing stone.
This standing stone had been leaning, and finally fell over after a severe winter 1979. An excavation of the socket of the fallen stone was carried out. This showed that one metre of the total length of 5.25 metres had been set into the socket and jammed with several packing stones.

|Thanks Nicola. A Modigliani for Thorgrim to copy!!!|
|This one is so clear that it doesn't need any help from me. Yep - it is a Modigliani! Lovely aquiline nose, very sensitive mouth, but only one eye. Odin? It has a touch of the Easter Islands about it too.|
|And no one managed to say phallic, well done, nice composition|
|It is quiet phallic, and reminds me of the stones I saw in Corsica, but it was much taller. The slash that makes its mouth is not natural, it has definately been carved into the stone. |
| At last somebody that sees faces... Michelle warned against seeing faces, but I think the builders were able to see both sides of it interchangeably .|
