Sculptured Stone in Baden-Wuerttemberg

A very strange stone of 4,7 m length with cups, not going inside but outside, like bowls. These cups are also on the sides of the stone! It has lots of signs on it like crosses and lines.

Der Mauzenstein ist ein wirklich seltsamer Stein von 4,7 m Länge. Die Schälchen gehen bei diesem Stein eigenartigerweise nicht nach innen, sondern nach außen. Es ist rätselhalft, wie das entstanden ist. Das verschnörktelte Zeichen wird als Werk einer Studentenbewegung vermutet, genaues weiß man nicht. Die Schälchen werden inkl. der auf den Seiten befindlichen als verschiedene Sternbilder gedeutet.
