A vishapakar also known as vishap stones, vishap stellas, “serpent-stones”, “dragon stones”, or simply as vishaps, are characteristic menhirs found in large quantities in the Armenian Highlands, in natural and artificial ponds, and other sources of water. They are commonly carved from one piece of stone, into cigar-like shapes with fish heads or serpents. Supposedly they are images of vishaps, mystical creatures.

The word’s etymology is disputed, either meaning a poisonous water-living creature or a creature of prodigious size. There are currently 150 vishaps in existence, of which 90 are found in Armenia.
