Fraubillenkreuz - Ferschweiler
Fraubillenkreuz - Ferschweiler

This famous menhir was christianized by a wandering monk W. into the cross form. That it is so lopsided is a new phenomenon. On one side, centered above ground, there is a deep hole which is prehistoric and which might point to a matriarchal world view.

Those grand menhirs (standing stones) are the famous ones in Germany. Especially the Gollenstein, which is the largest one of these. Noone is sure what they were meant for. Some must have had cult importance. Prehistoric chiselers work indicates a matriarchal meaning on the Fraubillenkreuz.
The christianization left its marks, see also on the Fraubillenkreuz, or the Saulheim menhir.
