Unusual find

St. Uzec: (Chritianised Menhir)

This menhir is extraordinary for many reasons. Tucked away in Brittany, this massive stone menhir stands at least 6 metres high if not more.

It was been Christianised around 1674. There are still carvings and a cross at the top in the present day. In the past it was also painted. You can see this by visiting the link at Ancient Wisdom

I will respond to your kind comments as soon as I can. Thanks for dropping by!

Nice info on this...
I wish they had just left it alone and not Christianised it !!
I am reminded of the character Obelisk who keeps carrying Menhirs....in the Asterix Comic Series :))

Yes, a weighty touch of mystery here . . the more we discover, the more there is to learn.
