This is a recreation of Stonehenge, the great ring of rocks on the English Salisbury Plain, as it may have looked around 1500 B.C.. The sun is shown rising over the heelstone as it does at the summer solstice. Nobody knows for sure who build Stonehenge so the dress of the priest shown is complete conjecture.
