Sunhoney - Rock Art

The sunhoney recumbent viewed from inside the circle looking SSW. The stone bears a claimed total of 31 cupmarks  many of which that are clearly visible in this low angle illumination photo. The count of 31 cups makes this the second most decorated stone to be found in a recumbent stone circle, beaten only by the prodigiously decorated recumbent at Rothiemay which bears a claimed 119 cups.
The upper surface shown above was probably  the inside face of the recumbent originally, but as the stone has been displaced, its initial situation is unknown. As can be seen at the bottom of the picture, the recumbent is cracked and broken, with a large piece missing at the lower right.
