A huge geoglyph in the shape of an elk or deer discovered in Russia may predate Peru's famous Nazca Lines by thousands of years.  

The animal-shaped stone structure, located near Lake Zjuratkul in the Ural Mountains, north of Kazakhstan, has an elongated muzzle, four legs and two antlers.


The style of stone-working called lithic chipping used on one artifact dates it to the Neolithic and Eneolithic (sixth to third millennia B.C.), though Grigoriev says the technology is more typical of the Eneolithic, between the fourth and third millennia B.C.

If that date is correct, it would make the geoglyph far older than Peru's Nazca Lines, the very earliest of which were created around 500 B.C.

Wonder why they built this.  Surely their time would of been better spent on survival.

Interesting thanks for posting.

Sorry Hasina I wasnt aware of them. I should use search button. But somehow I thought it would be in Ancient mysteries...I checked and I posted.

No worries, I wasn't aware of the first one either, lol. And my gosh, ancient mysteries should probably be the section it's in, another derp on me.

It would seem that many civilizations make similar shapes on the ground. Seemingly, too big to be of any use to people on the ground and yet, back in those days, they had no means of viewing them from above. Could they have been a signal for alien creature? Or perhaps angels descending from heaven?

It was after they "discovered" vodka.

Possibly landmarks for alien visitors?

Happiness illudes me. Each day is a struggle.

Probably just for something to do rather than sit around the fire listening to Og brag about his hunting prowess-again. Ritual theatre.

From what I've seen, they did not do a great job with this one.   I can see where it kind of looks like a four-legged animal.  I can also see where it could be something else.

Especially for those with link-phobia:

Unlike the geoglyphs of Nasca which generated many myths, in the Urals we have a figure whose building can be explained from rational positions, though the figure certainly had a cultic character. Contour marking in this instance was not a serious problem, as the area is perfectly visible from the ridge of Zjuratkul.  In the long term, a research programme, which should include excavation, remote-sensing and natural-science analyses (radiocarbon and luminescence dating, palynological and petrographic analyses) will be necessary to define more precisely our figure, its components and its date.

I'm looking at it and it kinda just looks like wiggly lines to me.  More of an ancient Russian fail to me.....yeah I get that they couldn't see it from the air.  But neither could the builders in Peru...and theirs didn't suck on such an epic level.

Or those in Nasca actually they could see from air.
