"I walked up the long slope side and this was on the other side and when I saw it I couldn't believe my eyes," Cowbourne was quoted as saying by BBC. 

"I just thought what on earth is that."

After last month's discovery in Utah, similar structures are appearing from around the world.

The artwork in the monolith on the Glastonbury Tor has a stencil drawing of a rat, a style similar to what is practised by British street artist Banksy. 

Cowbourne saw the monolith lying horizontally and she along with other people, placed it vertically with a lot of effort. 

"There were two big metal bolts but they hadn't been fixed to the ground properly. It's a big chunk of metal and it was really heavy," she said. 

Meanwhile, another metal monolith has popped up in the Polish capital Warsaw on a riverbank.
