Narrative

The origin of the stone is unknown. It is partly similar to the stones with rounded cone hollows, and partly - to the bowl-shaped stones. Maybe it is a transitional model between the two. It is also possible that the stone is from a church, where it might have been used as a bowl for the sacred water.
