Passage Grave

Knockmany (Passage Grave) by CianMcLiam C11. This highly decorated orthostat doesn't seem to know which way is up! Welch's 19th century photo shows it the opposite end up as described by Coffey (1898) who said he found it face down and re-erected it. In 1928 it was shown to have been turned upside down again, standing as it does now.

I looked at this for quite a while last night. That it is another great photo is a given, it is also an enigmatic, beautiful, puzzling piece of ancient 'art'.
It draws you back ...
