I've always had a thing for stones - although this one is looking like a giant boulder.
I sketched this up after seeing a documentary called "Spirit Stones" on the ABC.
"Spirit Stones is an exceptional film set in the southwest corner of Australia. On many occasions in the 1940s and 50s stones fell on Aboriginal (Noongar) camps. These 'showers' delivered stones in locations up to 250 kilometres apart, falling at various places for hours, sometimes days and even weeks and months. Landowners, Aboriginal farm labourers and inquisitive townsfolk were all witness to falling stones. Though these events stretched over many years not one person was ever hurt...."
