Entrance Stone, Newgrange, County Meath, Ireland

A plastic curvilinear pattern of swirls and diamonds decorates the main kerbstone at the entrance to the Newgrange passage tomb. The design gives the stone an illusion of massive rotundity. Newgrange dates to ca. 3000 b.c.e. Photo courtesy of The Office of Public Works, Ireland.
