When I scrambled over the rocks to the other, lower side, an idea struck me. Although this “carving” is a natural formation, it must have been important to earlier inhabitants due to its rarity. And if 4000 B.C. Man was really no less genetically primitive than 2000 A.D. Man, he would have to have been impressed with this rock face in a majorly theatrical way, as backdrop for ritual. Perhaps the massive cathedral high altar of today is a descendants of the mass of rocks behind the priestess/priest. My camera couldn’t do it justice, unfortunately.
Not far away, what 2000 AD Man has been up to: A stone labyrinth, close to the Mühlsee tram station.
