This week peculiar pillars of ice emerged in a circle in front of the red shed. How did one of the most famous prehistoric monuments and wonders of the world land at Mawson?
The work of Merlin? ancient Druids or Celts?
Nope, just a small team of Mawson winter expeditioners acknowledging the arrival of the Spring equinox in their own way — by constructing Ice–Henge, an ice replica of Stonehenge.
Stonehenge may have stood the test of time for 5000 years but the Mawson Ice-Henge lasted less than 24 hours before a blizzard with winds up to 100 knots blew on station.
We haven’t seen the Ice-Henge pillars or the two guys in horseheads since…
