  2. at the base of the statue is an inset of some other stone, carving from another stucture? I was too lazy last night to try and find a photo with all 3 - SO GOOD JOB!

    1. Thanks Ginger - I think you're right about the inset - will have to take another walk there and check it out. And I was too lazy to find 3 lol!
