The other day my very good friend Hilra, who lives in the UK, met on Facebook chat to discuss some business. At the end the conversation veered towards our shared passion, Google street view. She took me on a quick tour of the area near her and this happened:
The Cerne Abbas Giant is a hill figure near the village of Cerne Abbas in Dorset, England.
Made by a turf-cut outline filled with chalk, it depicts a large, naked man, with a substantial erect penis, typically described as a giant, wielding a club.
The figure is listed as a scheduled monument in the United Kingdom and the site where he stands is owned by the National Trust.
