Argimusco - The Eagle Monolith bis

Argimusco - The Eagle Monolith bis

Between the Mediterranean sea and the volcano Etna, the upland of Argimusco stands towards the sky. An impressive and evocative place where different monoliths emerge from the ground. Recent studies demonstrated that the site has been used as a natural calendar in order to measure the seasons' cycle. In the next coming years the Argimusco could become the Mediterranean Stonehenge. Different shapes characterize the monoliths like the praying woman and the eagle stone here in the foreground with the stars rotating behind.
