Several megalithic monuments are skilful decorated whit symbolic designs.
Remarkable monumentsThe passage tombs in Newgrange and Knowth (Irerland) and Gavrinis (Morbihan, France) give a good view on megalithic art.
Less known but also very interesting are the gravures in Petit Mont (Morbihan, France).

We only can guess the meaning of these symbols...
The zigzag lines carved in several stones, probably represent water. Stone
nr. 14 looks like the sun above sea...
