New and Improved Clonehenge Contest!

almondhenge

Our new contest begins with the autumn equinox. Create a cool, exciting, hilarious or just excellent henge or henges and send photos to us by winter solstice in the northern hemisphere [which is December 21st this year].

Judging will take place over the holidays and we will announce the winners early in January. These can be Stonehenge replicas you made before and never posted online (bear in mind, we spend a lot of time searching and have seen hundreds of replicas online that we’ve never posted to Clonehenge, so don’t assume that if it’s not posted here we haven’t seen it!) or replicas made new especially for the contest. They can also be Stonehenges you made for a school project (and possibly added stupid things to). Don’t forget the peoplehenge concept!

Foodhenges, dioramas with figures, beautiful high quality henges, stupid and silly henges, all are welcome. If we get enough we will divide them into categories. Winners will receive a Clonehenge t-shirt.

Photos may be sent to nancy.wisser @ gmail.com . Remove the spaces.

We look forward to seeing some inspired new henges. Happy henging, gentle readers!

Blockhenge Relocated

Now we have proof that henges, once assembled, turn into living things! This blockhenge, shown near the bottom of our Virtual Hengefest page, moved itself to a new location, and we know this due to its documentation by Brett Fernau, aka the Mad Henger, aka deadeyebart. We know he wouldn’t kid about something this serious!

blockhenge2The Flickr caption says, “Under mysterious circumstances, Blockhenge has been relocated and recreated. Its sudden reappearance has confused scientists who have stated that further study is needed. Personally, I think it’s evidence of alien activity.” It is soothing to know that scientists are working to solve the mystery, but we’ve been posting henges long enough to be convinced that aliens are not necessary as an explanation of peculiar activity on this planet! We carbon-based lifeforms do very well on our own, thank you.

This is a simple replica with no bluestones, altar stone, heel stone, or ditch and bank (although the square enclosure makes a gesture toward that element). It is nicely done, however, and appears to include two inner trilithons. Score: 6 druids.  We like the view off the platform in the first picture. Maybe the henge moved there in order to take it all in!
