Stones – irrespective whether slate, basalt, sandstone, marbel, volcanic bombs or glacial blocks – are all dumb witnesses of the past and the global memory in Earth’s history. Even hundreds or thousands of years after they have been formed by nature or artistic design into surreal natural sceneries and/or real sculptures they still provide information regarding past eons and long ago forgotten cultures.

Patiently digging and examining researchers and archeologists have decoded the messages of diversely carved stones on the whole world which report quite often about war and rulers or testify the spiritual beliefings of its creators which may also be quite demonic and frightening sometimes. The first glimpse induces us eventually to believe that all this is a simple illusion because our cognition likes irreal gamblings showing us only what we would like to see. Just look in the jewel’s case of your mother to understand what I mean.
