Building the Bamahenge.

Bamahenge

Field review by the editors.

Elberta, Alabama

Bamahenge, the world's first full-size fiberglass Stonehenge, was built by Foamhenge creator Mark Cline. "No Druid has ever worked this fast on a 'henge," said Mark, who erected the entire monument -- after siting it to be in line with the June 21 solstice -- in only four days. Mark saved time by designing only four "block" shapes, which could then be flipped over and turned around to make each look different. He completed it just in time for the winter solstice, 2012.

"I am evolving with the 'henges," said Mark. "First foam, then fiberglass; the next one is sure to be concrete. Let the wind huff and puff and blow that one down, by golly!"
