This strange piece of rock and megalithic art was recently discovered alongside the Golan and Galilee area, where the famous 4,200-year-old dolmens were once discovered.
According to Gonen Sharon, the study’s lead author, this is especially strange as we know absolutely nothing about these dolmens to begin with. We know that this is the oldest example of zoomorphic rock art in the area for sure, but we don’t know who could have authored this to begin with.
That’s right, this is by far the strangest part of this discovery, as Sharon claims this new discovery changes everything. Since it was placed in the dead center of a circle of smaller rocks from the Quiryat Shemona dolmen field, this obviously means it was of significant importance, to say the least to the natives who carved it to begin with.
The precision required for all other sculptures means that everything that was drawn here should be drawn like this, so its resemblance to a human face might not be coincidental after all.
Many believe that this depicts an ancient human who led them most likely in ancient times, but there are some who also believe this to be a representation of a primitive humanoid alien that showed itself to them and they decided to commemorate it by creating this sculpture.
