Tired of standing since the Iron Age - it leans, the stele!

Quite lovely, but it makes me want to try to straighten up the stele. ;)

Sehr interessant Christa, wir haben auch so etwas in der Nähe, den Menhir von Halle_Dölau, genannt die steinerne Jungfrau von Dölau. Meist wurden dort irgendwelche Riten durchgeführt. Eignet sich in heutiger Zeit vielleicht als Sonnenuhr? Man müsste nur entsprechende Zahlen aus Stauden dahinter pflanzen :)

Karsten, da habe ich gleich nachgeschaut, und hab gesehen, dass "Euer" Menhir auch Heidenstein gennannt wird; und die Legende mit der Jungfrau ist interessant. Und ansonsten : vielleicht ist es Obelix' Stein ??!!

Doug, perhaps the stele awaited that very moment, to be photographed a thousand years after having been put there;-))

A stele that wants to compete with the Pisan Tower ?????

M-C, I think that this stele is even more inclined than the Tower of Pisa (currently 3 ° 59 ') !!
