‘Magical’ monolith appears on Isle of Wight beach leaving locals ‘dumbstruck’

 

A “magical” monolith has been discovered on an Isle of Wight beach, just days after similar structures were spotted in the United States and Romania.

The pillar was spotted on Compton Beach, on the west side of the island, over the weekend.

Island resident Alexia Fishwick was left “dumbstruck” after the discovery, which she described as “really quite magical”.

She said it was “pure chance” that she came across it.

“I’d read about the one in Utah and then Romania, so I knew the significance. Many people took no notice of it,” she added.

She said people first thought she had photoshopped the images.

Ami Blackburn, 31, went to investigate and take her own photos with her son and boyfriend after seeing pictures on social media but reading rumours they may have been photoshopped.

Miss Blackburn, who is a healthcare assistant from Newport, Isle of Wight, said: “I saw the comments about the possibility of photoshop so my partner, myself and my youngest went to check it out.

“I thought it was very bizarre when I first saw it and immediately researched the ones found in Utah, California and Romania.

“We moved some of the sand from around the bottom and it’s partly buried but we felt underneath and it was made of wood with mirrors stuck to the side.

“I’d love the idea of it being delivered by aliens but it’s more than likely an unusual art project.

“But can 2020 get any weirder?

“I don’t know how heavy it would be or how deep it was buried but you have to go down some steep wooden steps to get to that point so I imagine it wouldn’t have been a one man job.”

Lee Peckham, a lawyer living on the island who also spotted the structure on Sunday afternoon, said: “I saw it and wondered what it was and thought it a rather strange thing to see on the beach!

“I wondered who put it there and why.”

A metal edifice was first found planted in the ground in a remote part of Utah at the end of November.

It disappeared just days later, and two other shining metal towers later appeared in Romania and Southern California.

An anonymous collective called The Most Famous Artist has taken credit for the monoliths in Utah and California.

It posted an image of the Utah monolith on Instagram, with a £34,000 price tag.

However, when asked about the Isle of Wight structure, it said: “The monolith is out of my control at this point. Godspeed to all the aliens working hard around the globe to propagate the myth.”
