DIY Stonehenge: Infographic

[via geek in heels, via Flavorwire, via Designboom]

Some 18,000 people gathered at Stonehenge yesterday to witness sunrise on the day of the summer solstice. To welcome the new season, I’m sharing the IKEA assembly instructions for the ancient monument. This awesome infographic by Justin Pollard, John Lloyd and Stevyn Colgan, appeared in this year’s Qi Annual.

Small print at the bottom:
Important! Ensure all components are free from mud, dung and evil spirits before assembly. Wear appropriate safety equipment (spear, flint knife etc.) in the event of bears. Small parts are not included.

If plagued by demons or suffering from pestilence, seek advice from a druid before attempting assembly.

May contain quartz.

I’m pretty sure you need to supply your own magician and beer. Also, there's is no mention of lingonberry preserves, but they are a must for human sacrifice.

Just a few pix ...
