Shape of the Stone of Tear

Recommended Posts

Does the Stone of Tear have a described shape? I've been checking TDR over and over, and I can't seem to find some description about its shape. Does it resemble a tear, for instance?

I always picture it as a giant hump. Like a shield laying on it's back facing the sky. One big dome. I guess that's probably not how it's described in the book, but the "one piece of stone" always made me think that for some reason, and now that's the way it is every time I read it.

to mb: Yeah, thanks.

 

Actually, I've seem this drawing before, but I was never sure how accurate it was. I assumed it was a somewhat unnoficcial fan art. This is speccially true because I was under the impression that  it didn't have a definite shape, since it was built with stones and sand brought from all around the world with the One Power.

 

to Kadere: Yesm this is more or less how I pictured it myself. I think I did it because the place is called Tear, and I kind of assumed it might have the shape of a tear...

For my part, I've always assumed it was more like a huge monolith, sort of like Stone Mountain outside of Georgia. That's just how I've seen it in my mind's eye, however.

Hah, I always pictured it as some sort of hill. There's a guy who's actually making single piece concrete buildings. They're just giant half circle things over the ground....

I just assumed the put enormous blocks of stone (see great pyramids in Giza) on top of each other making that massive-looking appearance, only disrupted by arrow slits and one large gate.
