That's great. Bit of a chunky depiction, but great. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

Yes I got a bit concerned for a while that it wasn't the right place at all. I think there's a bit of artistic license going on with the view between the stones as well? But I guess the etcher was working from a sketch by Stanley MP and wanted to make it look better :) They certainly look very noble and ancient don't they. Rhiannon Posted by Rhiannon

Yes, definitely artistic licence for the sea view! Yes, noble and ancient. Actually I reckon the best aspect of these stones is the slender balsa wood side. Love 'em, anyway. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat
