Stone of the Goats

DescriptionEdit

The zoomorphic motifs are scratched into the side of a large solitary rock and depict two animals, possibly deer. Each animal has six legs, which might have been a deliberate choice to represent movement in the figures.[1] The engravings have been tentatively dated to the Neolithic.
