An ovoo (Mongolian: овоо, heap) is a type of shamanistic rock cairn found in Mongolia.
Travelers in Mongolia should not pass by an ovoo without stopping. They are expected to stop and circle the ovoo three times in a clockwise direction. They should pick up a rock from the ground and add it to the pile before leaving. Also, travelers may leave offerings in the form of money, milk, or vodka.

An interesting and wonderful cultural frame. The story is almost common in different version in many countries but I believe its origin is there. I like your lower POV while adding more details and wonderful sky to your frame.

Nice composition,POV and sharpness. The cloud pattern adds special effect.

the widen angle works perfectly here, I like a lot the exaggerated perspective and how the clouds and skulls seem to radiate from that blue accent on top of the pile. good choice of point of view that places the ovoo against the sky instead of ground. excellent colours and details too, very well seen and presented.

With the skulls and the clouds all radiating out of the centre this shot is perfectly composed.
