The End of the World Was Long Ago - Carmarthen - Eagle of the Ninth - Rosemary Sutcliff, Sun Horse Moon Horse - Rosemary Sutcliff [Archive of Our Own]
Once, on his way south in chains, Esca saw a white horse carved into a hillside. Six years later, on their way to visit Cottia's mother, Cottia and Esca see the White Horse of Lubrinium, and Cottia tells Esca a story of the Iceni, long ago, before the Romans came to Britain. Sort of an Eagle of the Ninth/Sun Horse, Moon Horse crossover, bookverse.

Marree Man - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"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 the 300,000 square kilometre Woomera Prohibited Area. The figure is 4.2 km tall with a circumference of 15–28 km. Although the largest non-commercial geoglyph in the world, its origin remains a mystery, with not a single witness to any part of the expansive operation."
