I wonder where you heard that. When I had the idea to create the soul menhirs, the way they work and their background and scripted them I had no intention like that.

But this is no red flag for you, because I always imagined that they can be hewn into statues, altairs or other objects without disabling their function.

You might have heard a certain rumor about me. This rumor is completely false. You might also have heard the other rumor about me. This rumor is 100% accurate.

Crush..too funny, I actually began to pixel this quite awhile ago....not sure 9 months a year ago.
Around time as the pixel challenge...pixel a rock or whatever it was called.
so I heard (Human Shape), before that.

I did a quick search on goggle images and...

even funnier if you search google images for soul menhir you find our old GM capped rock and "Mistakes" pic...
The Mana World gets top billing for this search.
but who ever said it was right to some degree.
Some soul menhirs do depict human forms and faces
often this is just implied crudely or the features are weathered badly, but there are several neolithic examples of human detail
that are well defined as opposed to amorphous.
Some were even named or I should say renamed after figures from modern Christianity.
To undermine the original belief system...interesting stuff.
glad this Image led me to read about it =]
