Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

Of all the stone 'giants' in this most mystical of stone circles, this was the one stone that kept pulling me back. I see a trusted companion - a horse - frozen in stone.

Situated near the village of Calanais, Isle of Lewis on a ridge of land above Loch Roag, Callanais is one of the more remote stone circles in the British Isles. The circle consists of a central stone just under five metres in height, surrounded by a circle of thirteen stones.

To the North a double avenue of stones runs from the circle for eighty metres, probably the original entrance to the site. To the South, East and West run three single rows of stones forming the arms of a cross, the Southern arm extending slightly longer than the East and West alignments.
