I havent visited the boulder yet, just pinched a photo from instagram.com/fynskefortidsminder

This big boulder of Skulørstenen is found on a megalith tomb named Svindingedyssen, on a field 170 meters northeast of the address, and 70 meters into the field. The tomb is a dolmen burial chamber from the Peasant Stone Age; about 3000 BC
The dolmen is also called the Magnusstenen, thanks to the code word for dropping weapons to the resistance movement during the 1940-45 occupation.
Locally it is said that this was where H.C. Andersen wrote "I was born in Denmark" and Svindingedyssen inspired him to the phrase "ancient giant tombs".

Location: Regissevej 9, 5853 Ørbæk - and then north-east into the field.
GPS: 55°13'54.0"N 10°42'11.5"E     55.231668, 10.703193

Size: 2,0 metres high,3,0  metres wide and 3,3 meters long.

Meaning of the name: A "Skulørvejr" was an untrained animal, a sculled donkey. It could be seen as a dog, a calf, a a cat or as a tall man with a wide-brimmed hat or a woman in a gray shitty coat.

Material: ?

Origin: ?

Legend: The distinctive name is associated with a ghost, in the form of a black dog with shining eyes, Skulør, who lives by the dolmen. The locals know many hair-raising legends about the Skulør, who also visits the area's farms, where it bothers cattle and warns of bad times.
A man from Frørup, Nis Mogensen, had to pick up the midwife in Svindinge, and suddenly the schoolboy was sitting next to him in the carriage and then  Nis came out in a hurry and he ran all the way to the midwife and left both horse and carriage by the road.
The sculptor didn't like male animals, and they could not be kept on the farm.
Once it tried to push a girl down the well of the farm, and despite it failed, she became limbs.
