The Colossus of Mormon contains some of the largest megalithic blocks that have been recorded and investigated worldwide today, and although these statues have virtually collapsed over the Aeons, historical records of these statues have been around for centuries.
The Colossus of Mormon statues were built from a single piece of stone each! They are oriented towards the sunrise at the winter solstice and, throughout the modern study, have had a series of fearless individuals who expose their true greatness to the world. The estimates for the two statues with the initial weight are mentioned as being around 1,000 tons, another report estimates that they would have 1200 tons.
The statues are made of quartzite sandstone blocks, which were brought from quarries to el-Gabal el Ahmar, near Cairo, in our modern-day, then transported to Thebes, at a distance of 420 miles. And although the modern academics would like to attribute these facts to our more modern ancestors, namely the ancient Egyptians, any logical explanation of how they were sculpted so precisely, remain absent from all explanations of these monumental statues, not only their transport and creation but the way these ancient monuments used to sing. Greek and early Roman tourists, who came to hear the sound, gave the statue the name of Memnon
Memnon was a hero of the Trojan war, a king of Ethiopia, who led his armies in the defense of Troy, but was eventually killed by Achilles. Memnon was said to be the son of Eos, the goddess of dawn, and after his death, his mother said he shed tears every morning. The “song” of the statues was attributed to his mother mourning for her son.
The earliest written reference to the singing statues comes from the Greek historian and geographer Strabo, who claimed to have heard the song during a visit in 20 BC. Greek traveler and geographer Pausanias of the 2nd century compared these sounds with “the string of a lyre breaking”. Others described it as a strange, almost divine ghostly whistle.
For more than two centuries, the singing statues have brought tourists from all over the empire, including several Roman emperors. Many inscriptions left on the basis of the statue, reporting whether or not they heard the sound, nearly 90 inscriptions are readable today
The question is, who created these statues and how could they sing? They are clearly an amazing ancient achievement, once obtained by an advanced civilization now lost, monuments we find extremely convincing.
