My wooden model of  Hajar el Hibla aligned with the rising sun at the winter solstice. As I am in London Latitude 51 32 N  and Baalbek  is at 34 N the sun in my sky was much lower. The upper side of the stone is no longer total darkness.  The shadow of the crawling figure is the full length of the stone. 

To get this image I tilted the stone so as to align with the sun .  I wanted to imagine the impact on people watching the dawn.
