Ancient Life-Size Lion Statues Baffle Scientists

lion-statues.jpg1343233450l.yimg

A life-size granite lion sculpture discovered in the town of Karakiz in Turkey. Dating back more than 3,200 years, to the time of the Hittite Empire, the lion is shown "prowling forward" with rippling muscles.

"Two sculptures of life-size lions, each weighing about 5 tons in antiquity, have been discovered in what is now Turkey, with archaeologists perplexed over what the granite cats were used for.

One idea is that the statues, created between 1400 and 1200 B.C., were meant to be part of a monument for a sacred water spring, the researchers said.

The lifelike lions were created by the Hittites who controlled a vast empire in the region at a time when the Asiatic lion roamed the foothills of Turkey.

"The lions are prowling forward, their heads slightly lowered; the tops of their heads are barely higher than the napes," write Geoffrey Summers, of the Middle East Technical University, and researcher Erol Özen in an article published in the most recent edition of the American Journal of Archaeology.

The two lion sculptures have stylistic differences and were made by different sculptors. The lion sculpture found in the village of Karakiz is particularly lifelike, with rippling muscles and a tail that curves around the back of the granite boulder.

"The sculptors certainly knew what lions looked like," Summers told LiveScience in an interview. He said that both archaeological and ancient written records indicate that the Asiatic lion, now extinct in Turkey, was still very much around, some even being kept by the Hittites in pits.

Curiously the sculpture at Karakiz has an orange color caused by the oxidization of minerals in the stone. Summers said that he doesn't believe it had this color when it was first carved. [Aerial Photos Reveal Mysterious Stone Structures]

Ancient Mayan ‘night sun’ temple found in Guatemala

width=500 height=280http://www.rawstory.com/rs/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/Mayan-ruins-via-AFP.jpg[/img]

"GUATEMALA CITY — Archeologists have uncovered a 1,600-year-old Mayan temple dedicated to the “night sun” atop a pyramid tomb in the northern Guatemalan forest near the border with Mexico.

“The sun was a key element of Maya rulership,” lead archeologist Stephen Houston explained in announcing the discovery by the joint Guatemalan and American team that has been excavating the El Zotz site since 2006.

“It’s something that rises every day and penetrates into all nooks and crannies, just as royal power presumably would,” said Houston, a professor at Brown University, Rhode Island.

“This building is one that celebrates this close linkage between the king and this most powerful and dominant of celestial presences.”

Archeologists say the temple was likely built to honor the leader buried under the Diablo Pyramid tomb, the governor and founder of the first El Zotz dynasty called Pa’Chan, or “fortified sky.”

Mayan civilization, which spread through southern Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, and Belize, was at its height between 250 and 900 AD."

"A ring of stones marking an ancient cairn

There are more than 30 cairns (or stone monuments) and mounds scattered around the two hills of Carnbane West and Carnbane East at Loughcrew – known locally as “Slieve na Calliagh”, or Hill of the Witch. Legends say the cairns were created by a giant hag who strode the hills holding stones in her apron, with the stones she dropped becoming the rock monuments of today."

Ancient relics discovered in Peru

293441929.jpg

View of the sundial of the Caral archaeological complex.

"Lima - Archeologists in Peru have discovered a sundial, an underground tunnel and a reception room in a complex dating back to the Wari civilization, El Comercio newspaper reported on Sunday.

One of the relics is believed to be a precursor to an Incan sundial, while 18 niches painted in white on the walls may have held ancestral mummies, Joseph Ochatoma, leading the excavation, told the newspaper.

Ochatoma added that the reception room is shaped like the letter “D” and is surrounded by platforms.

The discovery was made several months ago but only disclosed recently.

The complex, situated in the the Andean region of Ayacucho was discovered in 1931. The first excavations there began in 1942 but were cut short due to budget shortfalls.

Today, archeologists from the San Cristobal de Huamanga National University are perusing the area for more information about the Wari civilization that dates back to between 600 and 1100 AD, Ochatoma said. - Sapa-AFP

First Ever Etruscan Pyramids Found in Italy

The pyramids were spotted by a series of ancient stairs that had been carved into the wall of what is now a wine cellar.

by Rosella Lorenzi

Sept 19, 2012

pyramid-278.jpgThe subterranean pyramids found in Orvieto, Italy could offer a unique insight into the mysterious Etruscan culture. Stairs carved into the wall can be seen at left. Click to enlarge this image.

David George

"(Discovery News) The first ever Etruscan pyramids have been located underneath a wine cellar in the city of Orvieto in central Italy, according to a team of U.S. and Italian archaeologists.

Carved into the rock of the tufa plateau –a sedimentary area that is a result of volcanic activity — on which the city stands, the subterranean structures were largely filled. Only the top-most modern layer was visible.

“Within this upper section, which had been modified in modern times and was used as a wine cellar, we noticed a series of ancient stairs carved into the wall. They were clearly of Etruscan construction,” David B. George of the Department of Classics at Saint Anselm, told Discovery News.

As they started digging, George and co-director of the excavation Claudio Bizzarri of the Parco Archeologico Ambientale dell’Orvietano noted that the cave’s walls were tapered up in a pyramidal fashion. Intriguingly, a series of tunnels, again of Etruscan construction, ran underneath the wine cellar hinting to the possibility of deeper undiscovered structures below.

After going through a mid-20th century floor, George and Bizzarri reached a medieval floor. Immediately beneath this floor, they found a layer of fill that contained various artifacts such as Attic red figure pottery from the middle of the 5th Century B.C., 6th and 5th century B.C. Etruscan pottery with inscriptions as well as various objects that dated to before 1000 B.C.

snip

"The material from the deepest level reached so far (the archaeologists have pushed down about 10 feet) dates to around the middle of the fifth century B.C.

"At this level we found a tunnel running to another pyramidal structure and dating from before the 5th century B.C. which adds to the mystery," George said.

Indeed, the Etruscans have long been considered one of antiquity's greatest enigmas.

A fun-loving and eclectic people who among other things taught the French how to make wine, the Romans how to build roads, and introduced the art of writing to Europe, the Etruscans began to flourish in Etruria (an area in central Italy area that covered now are Tuscany, Latium, Emilia-Romagna and Umbria) around 900 B.C., and then dominated much of the country for five centuries.

Known for their art, agriculture, fine metalworking and commerce, they started to decline during the fifth century B.C., as the Romans grew in power. By 300-100 B.C., they eventually became absorbed into the Roman empire."

I hope this is okay to post this video here with the articles about Pryamids~ I think this helps to show what the purpose of many of these sites were. A gathering spot for a group to commune or chant. I think it explains many of the spiral designs on walls. Imagine a group chanting in the right acoustics, they would have felt the vibration, perhaps seen the dirt moving on the floor and creating patterns and I'm sure they would end up feeling euphoric~

I had the opportunity to be in the audience of chanting Monks and I could not express the power that was going on within me :) Only to say "there are no words to describe it, it was simply a state of BEING in Awe".

I learned when becoming a Reiki Practitioner :  via our 7 Chakras if we sing out the Do, Re, Me scale, we can raise our vibration. The truth has always been right in front of us, we just didn't know. Today, many are beginning to understand about frequencies and vibrations. The fact that we resonate with earth and cosmic frequencies has been manipulated by those that choose to take control to keep us from Evolving to our Higher Levels.

This video shows you how easily the All Seeing Eye could have come to be such a symbolic image~

Hello P.O.S

Thank you very very much for your post and video i enjoyed it immensely, as will other like minded Chani members and guests and also especially our very own Narnug who I'm sure will have plenty to say when he sees this.

This is exactly what everything is about.

speaking of chants and vibration made me think of this woman.

this made me feel so open after listening to it.

at first i didn't know what the hell was going on.

i didn't know what was her and what was an instrument.

then i figured it out and haven't been the same since.

the whistling part is nonsensical ie. at the 1min10 mark and 2min03

notice when she gets her jig on fully, her eyelids go nuts.

don't you reckon she looks like a beautiful 'alien' when her eyelids do the crazy thing?

gorgeous.

i wanted to hug her such was the vibration emanating from her.

her energy is so centred...

put her in a pyramid and i may just have to pass out  :)

Extraterrestrial “Iron Man”: Buddhist Statue, Discovered By Nazi Expedition, Is Made Of Meteorite, New Study Reveals

Sept 26, 2012

"Priceless thousand year old statue is first carving of a human in a meteorite

It sounds like an artifact from an Indiana Jones film; a 1,000 year-old ancient Buddhist statue which was first recovered by a Nazi expedition in 1938 has been analysed by scientists and has been found to be carved from a meteorite. The findings, published in Meteoritics and Planetary Science, reveal the priceless statue to be a rare ataxite class of meteorite.

A thousand year-old ancient Buddhist statue known as the Iron Man

The statue, known as the Iron Man, weighs 10kg and is believed to represent a stylistic hybrid between the Buddhist and pre-Buddhist Bon culture that portrays the god Vaisravana, the Buddhist King of the North, also known as Jambhala in Tibet.

The statue was discovered in 1938 by an expedition of German scientists led by renowned zoologist Ernst Schäfer. The expedition was supported by Nazi SS Chief Heinrich Himmler and the entire expeditionary team were believed to have been SS members."

snip

“The statue was chiseled from a fragment of the Chinga meteorite which crashed into the border areas between Mongolia and Siberia about 15,000 years ago,” said Dr Buchner. “While the first debris was officially discovered in 1913 by gold prospectors, we believe that this individual meteorite fragment was collected many centuries before.”

Astounding...Gigantic Stone Structure Hidden in Ural Mountains

October 17, 2012

snip

"

A recent discovery reveals the Ural Mountains are still full of secrets.

Near the Zjuratkul lake in the Ural Mountains north of Kazakhstan there is a huge geoglyph in the shape of an elk or deer.

Researchers estimate that this ancient giant figure is several thousand years older than the Nazca Lines of Peru.

The animal-shaped stone structure was originally discovered by Alexander Shestakov who first spotted it on satellite images.

The entire stone structure is gigantic. Researchers say it stretches for about 900 feet (275 meters) at its farthest points, from northeast to southeast. The size is equivalent to two American football fields.

"The figure would initially have looked white and slightly shiny against the green grass background," writes Stanislav Grigoriev, of the Russian Academy of Sciences Institute of History & Archaeology, and Nikolai Menshenin, of the State Centre for Monument Protection, in an article first detailing the discovery published last spring in the journal Antiquity. They note that it is now covered by a layer of soil.

According to Grigoriev "the hoof is made of small crushed stones and clay."

Since there are other similar sites in the area, Russian archaeologists believe this enormous stone structure was created by an unknown megalith culture that was present in the Urals thousands of years ago.  Thank you Icsa..and Reddwolf

Egyptian princess' tomb dating from 2500 BC is discovered near Cairo

By Anthony Bond

PUBLISHED:18:09 EST, 2 November 2012|

"A princess' tomb dating from about 2500 BC has been discovered near Cairo, the Egyptian government revealed today.

The discovery was made in the Abu Sir region south of Cairo by a team of archeologists from Czechoslovakia.

'We have discovered the antechamber to Princess Shert Nebti's tomb which contains four limestone pillars,' Mohamed Ibrahim, Egypt's antiquities minister, said.

CHECK OUT THE PICTURE...WONDERFUL  BUT COPYWRITTEN

"The pillars 'have hieroglyphic inscriptions giving the princess's name and her titles, which include 'the daughter of the king Men Salbo and his lover venerated before God the all-powerful,' he added.

Ibrahim said that the Czech Institute of Egyptology's mission, funded by the Charles University of Prague and directed by Miroslav Bartas, had made the discovery.

'The discovery of this tomb marks the beginning of a new era in the history of the sepulchres at Abu Sir and Saqqara,' Ibrahim said."

Unexplained Mystical Structure: Egyptian “Ankh Cross” Temple?Built By The Aztecs?

November 13, 2012

"The Egyptian ankh cross…in Mexico? That’s right. The ruins of a mysterious Aztec temple bears a strange and striking resemblance to Egypt’s ankh cross. This Aztec ankh temple is perfectly aligned with an Egyptian-like stone pyramid at the same archaeological site. Scholars doubt any Aztec connection to the Egyptians, since both cultures evolved on opposite sides of the Atlantic Ocean, and were never in contact. Yet, strangle, the meaning of this Aztec ankh seems suspiciously parallel to the meaning behind Egypt’s ankh cross.

aztec-ankh-cross-and-pyramid.jpg

"Pyramid aligned with an Egyptian-style ankh cross temple, Calixtlahuaca, Mexico.

The Aztecs and the Egyptians were parallel civilizations in many ways, despite having evolved on opposite sides of the Atlantic Ocean. Both cultures built pyramids, both used solar symbolism, and both believed in life after death, preparing their dead for a journey to the afterlife via an elaborate and highly-ritualistic ceremony.

Both cultures also used a very similar “tau” cross symbol?for the very same purpose: To signify the forces and interplay between physical life (which they saw as temporary, material) and spiritual life (which they saw as eternal, spiritual).

In Egypt, this cross was called “ankh,” which was formed by a “tau” cross (looks like the letter “T”) with a loop on top of it:"

egyptian-ankh-cross-of-life-key-of-the-nile.jpgEgypt’s ankh cross is a tau symbol with a loop on top.

In Mexico, the Aztecs and Mayas used the same exact “tau” cross, only with no loop:

width=500 height=245http://www.richardcassaro.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/tau-cross-mexico.jpg[/img]

Tau-shaped icons built by the Mayans, forerunner of the Aztecs.

“The Tau cross was common enough in Egyptian symbolism that it has sometimes also been called the Egyptian cross…The Spanish conquistadors found the cross to be well known as a symbol by the Incas and Aztecs…”

? Geoffrey W. Bromiley, International Standard Bible Encyclopedia: A-D

“The Egyptian Tau?the sign of life?also occurs on Central American monuments…”

?Robert S. Littell, The Living Age

Usually the Aztecs did not put a loop above their tau cross. However, there exists in ruins a cruciform-shaped building located at an archaeological site called Calixtlahuaca in present-day Mexico. This Aztec ankh cruciform building is stunningly similar, in both shape and design, to countless ankh crosses depicted by the Egyptians.

This is what they recon are the small square stones that you see hung on the Roswell Chapel in Scotland.

They recon that the stones carved in such shapes, represent either an old "hymn" or chant....

Teotihuacan

The original builders of the complex are unknown, but it is suggested by Spence (1), that it was the Mecca of the Nahua. The city was left abandoned in 700 AD.

It was suspected by Stansbury Hagar that the city had been built as a 'map of heaven'. During the 1960's and 1970's a comprehensive mathematical survey was carried out by Hugh Harleston Jr, who found that the principle structures line up along the 'Street of the dead' (and beyond), from which he concluded the city was a precise scale model of the solar system, including Uranus, Neptune and Pluto (not rediscovered until 1787, 1846 and 1930 respectively. (21).

Electricity: (The Ancient use of)

The use of electricity before the 20th century has been proven beyond refute by the numerous examples of 'batteries' found in the middle-east, dating from approx 250 BC. These are the earliest absolute proofs of the use of electricity, although they represent the result of objective experimentation at a time when there seems little or no purpose for it.

At present, there seems to be only one candidate for such a science, which is the electroplating of objects with fine layers of gold or silver. The earliest potential example of this art is from Sumeria, at about 2,000 BC, over a thousand years earlier than the discoveries of any batteries, offering more questions than answers over the presence of these electroplated objects.

2,750-year-old temple found near Jerusalem

Dec. 27, 2012

horse-fig2.JPG

"Archaeologists have discovered a 2,750-year-old temple along with a cache of sacred artifacts, providing rare insight into religious practices at the time, the Israeli Antiquities Authority announced Wednesday.

The temple was uncovered west of Jerusalem, at the Tel Motza archaeological site, in preparation for work on Highway 1. Among the finds are pottery figurines, fragments of chalices and decorated pedestals, which indicate the site was the stomping ground of a ritual cult.

"The ritual building at Tel Motza is an unusual and striking find, in light of the fact that there are hardly any remains of ritual buildings of the period in Judaea at the time of the First Temple,” said excavation directors Anna Eirikh, Dr. Hamoudi Khalaily and Shua Kisilevitz in a statement.

"“The uniqueness of the structure is even more remarkable because of the vicinity of the site's proximity to the capital city of Jerusalem, which acted as the Kingdom's main sacred center at the time."

Fossil Older Than Oxygen on Earth Found in Australia

Jan. 2, 2013

The 3.5 billion-year-old fossil could help scientists discover microbes on Mars

Jason Koebler

"Researchers have found fossils of bacteria that are nearly 3.5 billion years old, believed to be the oldest visible fossils ever uncovered.

The fossils, found in northwest Australia's Pilbara region, are from a time before oxygen existed on Earth and are from just one billion years after Earth's formation, according to Old Dominion University's Nora Noffke, one of the researchers who worked on the project.

[sTUDY: T-Rex Could Have Lurked in the Grand Canyon]

The fossils are imprints found on sandstone that was formed when microbes interacted with rock sediment. Scientists have discovered older rocks, but Noffke says those rocks have eroded to the point where traces of life are all but impossible to find."

300-million-year-old UFO tooth-wheel found in Russian city of Vladivostok

Jan. 19, 2013

Yulia Zamanskaya

Photo: en.wikipedia.org

"Lighting the fire during a cold winter evening a resident of Vladivostok found a rail-shaped metal detail which was pressed in one of the pieces of coal that the man used to heat his home. Mesmerized by his discovery, the responsible citizen decided to seek help from the scientists of Primorye region. After the metal object was studied by the leading experts the man was shocked to learn about the assumed age of his discovery. The metal detail was supposedly 300 million years old and yet the scientists suggest that it was not created by nature but was rather manufactured by someone. The question of who might have made an aluminum gear in the dawn of time remains unanswered."

snip

"The metal detail which was recently found by Vladivostok resident is yet another discovery which perplexed the scientists. The coal in which the metal object was pressed was delivered to Primorye from Chernogorodskiy mines of Khakasia region. Knowing that the coal deposits of this region date 300 million years back, Russian experts inferred that the metal detail found in these deposits must be an age-mate of the coal."

snip

"Another question that interests Russian scientists is whether the aluminum alloy is of Earthly origin. It is known from the study of meteorites that there exists extra-terrestrial aluminum-26 which subsequently breaks down to magnesium-26. The presence of 2 percent of magnesium in the alloy might well point to the alien origin of the aluminum detail. Nonetheless, further testing is needed to confirm this hypothesis."

British Archaeologist Uncovers Martial Traditions of Minoan Civilization

Jan. 17. 2013

Dr Barry Molloy, an archaeologist at the University of Sheffield, the United Kingdom, has discovered that the Minoan civilization had strong martial traditions, contradicting the commonly held view of Minoans – the Bronze Age people of Crete – as a peace-loving people.

image_826_1.jpg

Minoan Palace of Knossos in Crete (Bernard Gagnon / CC BY-SA 3.0)

"Dr Molloy explained: “their world was uncovered just over a century ago, and was deemed to be a largely peaceful society. In time, many took this to be a paradigm of a society that was devoid of war, where warriors and violence were shunned and played no significant role.”

“That utopian view has not survived into modern scholarship, but it remains in the background unchallenged and still crops up in modern texts and popular culture with surprising frequency.”

“Having worked on excavation and other projects in Crete for many years, it triggered my curiosity about how such a complex society, controlling resources and trading with mighty powers like Egypt, could evolve in an egalitarian or cooperative context. Can we really be that positive about human nature? As I looked for evidence for violence, warriors or war, it quickly became obvious that it could be found in a surprisingly wide range of places.”

Dr Molloy’s study, published in the Annual of the British School at Athens, reveals that war was in fact a defining characteristic of the Minoan society, and that warrior identity was one of the dominant expressions of male identity."

OK. Guys/Gals...I know I posted this somewhere on this forum..but cannot seem to find it now..

about the finding of Atlantis....so I am posting it again, it's from last October..

Atlantis Found: Giant Sphinxes, Pyramids In Bermuda Triangle

October 1, 2012

Crystal_Pyramid(1).jpg

"Perhaps eclipsing the discoveries of Troy and King Tut's tomb is the discovery of Atlantis. Now, two daring scientists, Paul Weinzweig and Pauline Zalitzki, claim they've found it. They discovered the submerged ruins of the ancient city off the shores of Cuba. In the distant past the region was dry land, but now only the island of Cuba remains above water. The ancient city is 600 feet below the ocean and the team of researchers led by Weinzweig and Zalitzki are convinced it is Atlantis—the city lost for more than 10,000 years."

Gulf.jpg

Atlantis found in Bermuda Triangle

"Two scientists, Paul Weinzweig and Pauline Zalitzki, working off the coast of Cuba and using a robot submersible, have confirmed that a gigantic city exists at the bottom of the ocean. The site of the ancient city—that includes several sphinxes and at least four giant pyramids plus other structures—amazingly sits within the boundries of the fabled Bermuda Triangle.

According to a report by arclein of Terra Forming Terra, Cuban Subsea Pyramid Complex, the evidence points to the city being simultaneously inundated with rising waters and the land sinking into the sea. This correlates exactly with the Atlantis legend.

The disaster may have occurred at the end of the last Ice Age. As the Arctic icecap catastrophically melted it caused sea levels to rise quickly around the world, especially affecting the Northern Hemisphere. Coast lines changed; land was lost; islands (even island continents) disappeared."

Plato.jpg

The Greek philosopher Plato wrote of lost Atlantis

"At the end of last Ice Age sea levels were nearly 400 feet lower than present day levels. Once the waters began to rise, they rose swiftly. Conceivably, no technology then, or now, could have saved Atlantis from its watery grave. The evidence that land in what's now the Caribbean also sank into the sea concurrently seems pretty certain.

Arclein observes: "At the time uplifted portions of the Mid Atlantic Ridge subsided also including Lyonese and the home islands and land mass around the Azores. Even if that had not happened, this subsidence was amply large enough."

A giant mystery: 18 strange giant skeletons found in Wisconsin – Sons of god; Men of renown

"Here’s one for your “Forbidden Archaeology” file. Scientists are remaining stubbornly silent about a lost race of giants found in burial mounds near Lake Delavan, Wisconsin, in May 1912. The dig site at Lake Delavan was overseen by Beloit College and it included more than 200 effigy mounds that proved to be classic examples of 8th century Woodland Culture. But the enormous size of the skeletons and elongated skulls found in May 1912 did not fit very neatly into anyone’s concept of a textbook standard. They were enormous. These were not average human beings."

"They date back around 2,000 years to a time when a kingdom named Kush flourished in Sudan. Kush shared a border with Egypt and, later on, the Roman Empire. The desire of the kingdom's people to build pyramids was apparently influenced by Egyptian funerary architecture."

"The biggest pyramids they discovered are about 22 feet (7 meters) wide at their base with the smallest example, likely constructed for the burial of a child, being only 30 inches (750 millimeters) long. The tops of the pyramids are not attached, as the passage of time and the presence of a camel caravan route resulted in damage to the monuments. Francigny said that the tops would have been decorated with a capstone depicting either a bird or a lotus flower on top of a solar orb."
