Photographer's Note

Macedonia's Megalithic-era Kokino Observatory is located 1,030m above sea level on the Taticev Kamen Summit near Kumanovo. Archaeological and astronomical analyses have shown that the observatory is more than 3,800 years old. According to NASA, which released a list ranking observatories by age, it is the fourth oldest in the world, after Abu Simbel in Egypt, Stonehenge in Britain and Angkor Wat in Cambodia.

The guy is seating over the handcrafted thrones, where the preists or who ever seated, watched the movement of the sun and the moon.

Crop of the right half would be perfect, but I wanted to present every handmade throne.
