Beautiful My Dubai 🥳

Good afternoon Dubai 🥰

In Caldragh graveyard on Boa Island stand two unique stone carvings. While the site dates from the Irish early Christian period, both of the stone figures are generally accepted to be the likeness of pagan deities and are dated to the Bronze Age. 👀 The larger of the figures is the Boa Island bilateral figure. It is called a Janus-figure because it has two faces. It is thought to represent a Celtic deity and could represent a Celtic goddess as readily as a god, especially given the name of the island. The smaller figure is known as the Lustyman, because it was found on the nearby island of Lusty More. Some claim it is in fact a female figure.
