Split wedged rock from California

Another photo from Ron Smith, taken in the Sutter Buttes (click to enlarge, so you can see into the crack).

How long before PW also found a similarity at Ron's site?
Not very.
(A boulder split to look a turtle?)

Well, we now know that split filled boulders, rows connecting boulders, and propped boulders are found throughout North America, and even in Europe. I suppose this could be explained by the common animistic religion found in these cultures world wide. Can these examples also be found in Japan, for example?
