Stonehenge Under Glass

It’s like a little herd of Stonehenge on a hill! You can almost imagine tiny mysterious druids that only come out when you’re not around and put up megaliths. Awesome! This item threatens the Taipei Stonehenge sculpture‘s claim to the Cutest Stonehenge title.

terrarium-23The terrarium in the photo above, sadly, has been sold. The one to the left, however, is still for sale on Etsy, “the place to buy and sell things handmade”, as are others, including the less poetic but intriguingly-named Butt Crack Terrarium . . . Oops! We’re too easily distracted. Let’s stick with Stonehenge replicas and let others blog the butt cracks!

These mossy models are in some ways preferable to many of the more complete and accurate small replicas. The moss implies the charm of the landscape, the essential Stonehenge factor so often overlooked by replica makers, especially those on the left side of the Atlantic. As much as it has been co-opted by astronomers, Stonehenge wasn’t just about the sky–at least that’s our opinion, if we’re allowed one.

And now we have some scoring to do. Score: 6 druids. It may not be accurate, but gosh darn it, we like it, and we can do whatever we want. It’s our blog!

  2. Lol. little bell-shaped druids like those vegetables they grow in odd-shaped moulds!

  3. I just wanted to take it home, feed and care for it until it grew into a full-sized adult Stonehenge, but you know how it is once they’re grown–all the tourists, and then at solstice the hippies and the police. I would just end up taking it to the Stonehenge shelter hoping someone would come and take it before they had to put it down. So I passed.
