The Marree Man, or Stuart's Giant is a geoglyph discovered by air on 26 June 1998. It appears to depict an indigenous Australian man, most likely of the Pitjantjatjara tribe, hunting birds or wallabies with a throwing stick. It lies on a plateau at Finnis Springs 60 km west of the township of Marree in central South Australia. It is just outside of the 200,000 square kilometre Woomera Prohibited Area. The figure is 4.2 km tall with a circumference of 15–28 km. It is the largest known geoglyph in the world and is estimated to have taken between four and eight weeks to create, but despite this its origins are a mystery, with not a single witness to any part of the expansive operation. The name "Stuart's Giant" was given in an anonymous press releases, after John McDouall Stuart.

 

But the most interesting in this geoglyph that his weapon he points to Nan Madol, the distance to which is 4602 km, or 41.4 degree arc. And if you draw a line through the sacred mountain of Uluru and Easter Island, it will be just over a foot hunter.
