Carved designs similar to those found on the orthostats and roofstones of passage tombs. The motifs are mostly geometric in form, comprising circles, spirals, lozenges, zigzags, triangles, etc. In this database the term is only applied where an isolated stone occurs with this art. This dates to the Neolithic period (c. 4000-2400 BC).
