Inside Maeshowe Chambered Cairn • 2800 BC • Orkney Islands ======================================== ======================================== Maeshowe is a Neolithic chambered cairn and passage grave situated on Mainland, Orkney, Scotland. It was probably built around 2800 BC. It gives its name to the Maeshowe type of chambered cairn, which is limited to Orkney. The best-known attribute of Maeshowe is its world-famous midwinter alignment. In the weeks leading up to the winter solstice, the darkest time of the Orcadian year, the last rays of the setting sun shine through Maeshowe's entrance passage to pierce the darkness of the chambered cairn. ======================================== ======================================== #scotland #orkney #monument #architecture #sculpture #statue #painting #artwork #art #creation #egypt #history #zoom #details #focus #perspective #nature #wanderlust #landscape #inspiration #serenity #meditation #peace #love #health #travel #geometry #astronomy
