The Long Man of Wilmington (Hill Figure) by Cursuswalker This shows the constellation of Orion overlaid over the Long Man, both in its actual form and reversed.

In his book "Stonehenge" John North suggests a Neolithic origin to the Long Man with the constellation of Orion, which skims Windover Hill in its passage across the sky, as the original inspiration for the figure.

It occurred to me that placing a reversed Orion over the original shape might provide a believable framework for whatever form the Long Man originally took.

All speculation of courseā€¦. but the results are interesting.
