As the sun set, on the eve of Summer Solstice at Stonehenge, a 20ft giant could be seen silhouetted against the ancient sarsen stones.
And, as the sun dropped over the horizon, the six tonne man became a focal point for revellers gathered overnight for the solstice celebrations.
Towering over the solstice revellers, 'The Ancestor' is the creation of local metal work artists Andy and wife Michelle Rawlings.
Working in a barn, a few miles from Stonehenge, it's taken the couple over six months to complete their creation.
The result is a massive, mosaic looking structure made up of small randomly cut pieces of steel plate painstakingly welded to a heavy duty steel frame.
Called 'The Ancestor', the artists are hoping that the ancient-looking man will represent everyone's ancestor on his knees in praise of the sun.
Transported to Stonehenge, in parts, and welded together on site the Ancestor is set to stay at the ancient monument throughout the solstice celebrations before heading to the Holiday Inn at Solstice Park.
Where, according to Andy and Michelle, he will be put up for sale for an undisclosed amount.
What are these?
