representing County Antrim in Ireland as Sagittarius.
What is remarkable about the Holestone is that it sits on a big crag of earth and rock far larger than the megalith itself and the rock of the crag below the megalith has also been carved, though apparently not discovered by anyone yet other than myself. Most observers pay too much attention to one specific obvious feature at a site and do not do a thorough view of everything. The crag not only pictures Sagittarius, but also the boat of Capricorn, Sagitta, Aquila and perhaps Scorpio to the far right, but I do not have enough material on the photo to be sure.
We underestimate the thoroughness of the ancients. They left nothing to chance and most sites are carved and designed to a much greater extent than we realize. Apparently, EVERYTHING was seen by Neolithic Man to have a significance. The ancients had time and were not in a hurry.
You will appreciate the sites more in knowing that every stone used was specially selected for its purpose. Our ancestors were a creative people - just as we are today.
