Morgan County Tennessee - Strange Stone Formation

This stone formation was found years ago by my aunt, she insists it is Native American in origin. She said the design was carved into it but since the picture was taken with an old Polaroid its very hard to see detail. She refused to say where it was and we only know that it was about a days hike from her old house. At the bottom of the mountain is in fact a Native site. We have found arrowheads, spears and what appears to be some sort of dwelling perhaps. It was a stone structure circular in nature and a depression in the center of about 6 feet. As to what the stone is, we still do not know. Bear in mind this stone was on a mountain about 1500 to 2000 feet up. Ive included two versions, one which is lighter. Any ideas?

looks like sundial, with the lines in it but I also see that it has four different circular sections in it too. Is it setting on a slant or close to an old stream bed? Thinking it may be a place where the indians made meal from the grain.

The pics aren't really good enough to tell what it is. Could be natural, or man made.

If your Aunt is still living, ask her where it is. Why would she keep it a secret?

Cool stuff,,,,
to me it looks like either a compass of sorts or a sundial.
But that is just from the circular shape and the quads laid out on it.
I think I would bribe gmaw to tell ya where it is.
And hopefully it is still there.
Seems when this stuff becomes public knowledge it is either defaced or removed.
