K. Dona :The Hidden History of the Human Race

124 posts in this topic

I have to say, scientific discoveries have revealed to me a wonderful world, in some ways more amazing than the fantasies I let myself believe when I was younger.

Mostly, to me, was how scientists have been able to reveal the faces of our ancestors, and little scraps about their lives, bits of who they were.

Shadowsot, I was once one of 'those' dreamers, believing anything that opposed science.

And you are damn right: science shows us wonders no Tolkien could ever have dreamt up.

Yes... He seemed to get a lot of flack simply because he wasn't a degreed expert in the field... LOL.. I know many who have University degrees in history.. archaeology.. and so forth.. but do not have the passion some of these people show... some get degrees in various fields.. like psychology and so forth.. and only learn all their notes parrot fashion.. study past study notes to learn the basics of what they have to know just to pass..

Most wouldn't even care to go into the field that they have studied for... For many these days getting degrees.. Doctorates... are just rights of passage.. the minimum any doting parent will let them get away with before they can strike out on their own and do what they will with their lives... and that is mainly get an income sufficient to provide all their needs.. and desires.. pay for a few good holidays or car.. or save for a house... Again... not many have the true passion to do much with these precious keys to the doors of acceptance... peer approval. Yet there are others who also have to make a living and have 10 times the passion these fields.. and because they are not indoctrinated in the accepted ground work.. are there fore not blinkered to what they should be seeing.. expecting.. these, who have passion in these historical fields are able to see things with fresher eyes.. come to the table from differing doors.. peer over different fences of possibilities that those who have been indoctrinated with acedemic blinkers may not even think of exploring.

I have been hearing of out of place finds for decades.. ( ;) .. lots of it from the trusty National Geographic magazines) Much of this.. as you know will be put aside or disgarded... and then forgotten.. future validating discoveries or possible links.. new directions will then be overlooked... Others later who find some matching or sympathetic pieces of unusual artifacts will also not be able to place them or validate them as all these precious validating pieces will either have been long discarded.. or lost in some dusty attic.. or been dismissed as possible fakes... Some times in fear or fits of jealousy by others in the field who would have their work questioned or superceded. Knowing how hard it is to get some new information out there.. the many months or years of rigmarol that one has to go through with peers and others in the field... to have anything published...the politics some truly significant discovery can have in changing all perceptions.. one can understand the hesitancy of including some really contraversial new evidence.. artifacts...

We know how often in scientific fields.. especially pharmacology... how experiments are adjusted to meet the sponsor's expectations.. how unsupporting data.. experiments, are diplomatically discarded or minimized to creat the targeted outcome..

So too I believe it is in our acceptance of what went on in the past.. Much of our knowledge or the past has been reasigned to support the political religious environment of the time... Read the history of different lands.. Not the Western version.. and you'll find they differ.. even the history in the past hundred years has been rewritten to make each country seem more politically correct.. for better PR..

Over the hundreds.. thousands of years.. new rulers of the lands often reworked some of the history.. burned.. altered records.. destroyed artifacts.. architecture.. art..people...

So what is really true?

So.. Klaus Dona , as I said.. may not have all the qualifications.. but with many of the positions he did have a keen eye for quality.. good art.. high quality artifacts would have been learned on the job.. for the job.

He must have had a very good reputation to hold these exhibitions.. especially in Vienna.. where security is tight.. and reputations are important.

He would have learned to hold his own in all circles of the art world across many nations. Been trusted and passed all security tests to be able to handle all these expensive unique pieces of art.. and museam quality items.

As he said.. his passion for ancient history has been inspired.. and going strong for well over ten year.. Ten years plus being surrounded by the highest quality of pieces.. privy to inumerable private collections.

I believe that in many cases the best Museum quality artifacts.. relics .. never make it to museums.. as many private collectors will pay top dollar for them.

To dismiss rare glimpses of private collections as fraudulent.. possible fakes just because academia.. scientists.. historians hadn't fully been able to play with them... and lord over their place in history. Is this really wise..

Again.. Klaus Dona does not make any claims to be an expert.. but has often mentioned that he had the connections to seek the top experts help on any questions he has of various objects.. to help with the validation and research of these artifacts.. .. especially those from private collections.

You can imagine how these wealthy private collectors would pay well to have top often poorly paid experts from academia to quietly go to their house and validate.. their aquired objects.. as they too wouldn't want to be fools paying huge sums of money for worthless artifacts.. they may seek help restore various objects.. or to write validating research papers on various objects.. give advice on how to best display their aquired objects.

CS - You have already acknowledged the rather sad state of your early education. For this, you do have my sympathy. However, that situation should not be taken as an automatic license to not pursue further, more worthwhile studies. Many on these pages have openly expressed their various (and highly commendable!) engagement in such.

To address some of the more general points presented;

Your perception of those who have pursued advanced degrees would apparently be limited to a rather narrow range of experience, accompanied by your own interpretation of the situations. If you doubt that "passion" does not exist amongst degreed archaeologists, I would recommend that you subscribe to some of the professional journals or attend a conference in your area. The discourse can become quite heated and debates can carry on for years.

Re. - Publication. Again, your own perceptions of the workings of scientific publication may be hindering your evaluation. Publication can take time, for a number of reasons. The extensive analysis/research time that precedes the presentation of significant new information is a part of the scientific process. One does not (at least wisely) wish to present a position that can not be thoroughly supported. This would be one of the major flaws in the "works" of Dona et. al.

Re. - Private collections. This gets into a most questionable area. The illicit trade in stolen artifacts is a highly lucrative and controversial subject. You may wish to consult such references as;

Richman, Jennifer and Marion P. Forsyth

2004 "Legal Perspectives on Cultural Resources"

Many private collectors do not necessarily invite qualified analysis, as it may reveal their illicit activities. But, to move beyond that point. One of the primary tenants in archaeology is context. Once an artifact has been surreptitiously "removed"/"isolated" from its context, the overwhelming amount of data that can be gleaned from that artifact is lost. Archaeology is not a treasure hunt. And displaying "neat stuff" in an unprovenienced context does not constitute "research". Nor does it constitute an accurate reflection of our current understandings of human and cultural change.

To more succinctly address some of the material that Dona puts forth;

Mu - A simple one here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mu_%28lost_continent%29

Crystal skulls - http://www.archaeology.org/0805/etc/indy.html

Ancient America magazine/ Wayne May - This is a terminally poor publication put out by an individual (May) whose vested interest is support of the Mormon religion;

http://www.fairlds.org/pubs/QArch.pdf

Even his own church does not support him;

http://www.bmaf.org/node/277

The shoe prints/hammer are quite well addressed here;

http://paleo.cc/paluxy.htm

Other aspects such as DNA, infant cranial binding, Yonaguni, flouresence, etc., etc. have already been addressed. One could go on and on.

Am quite confident that you perceive the bottom line. This is yet another in a long line of attempts to construct an unsupported/artificial "history" for the sake of the financial benefit of the "inventor" of these schemes.

While you never specified Australia, making a broad sweeping statement instead, neither Australia nor any part thereof speaks for the level of education from anywhere else on the globe, particularly in the 60's and 70's timeframe. I also went to school in the 60's and 70's: Germany twice (Darmstadt and Kaiserslautern), Kansas, West Virginia, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee and 2 locations in Texas. None of these schools were that backwards in education, nor should it be assumed they were anything more than typical. The point being that your education as regards ancient history should not be seen as typical of anyone elses.

cormac

Hey... I am far from saying I agree with what and how we were taught back in the "60's and 70's "... quite the opposite.. I was saying that that it how education system was boxed in within the religious parameters. That , according to the schools I went to was "How things were".. if you gave any other answers.. they were marked wrong.. spoke out in class about it.. and it was a choice of straps or canes...

Much of history , as with science has somewhat matured since then.. which is a good thing.. but as my kids and some others have pointed out.. they are sometimes using 20_ 30 year old school books... in some cases... not the 'revised editions'.

but on the whole now I am surprised how much more knowledge is packed in to each year these days as far as education is concerned.

What we learned in High School and entry level.. in the old days.. is what kids are required to know in primary school.

Do some of the teachers go to conferences.. seminars .. like doctors and others in various sciences.. to be upgraded in the latest discoveries in their respective fields?

.. Oh.. don't know if it is just bad in other countries.. but some of the documentaries we see about the education systems in America and so forth seems pretty sad... that there are some really hefty debates going on here..

My link

My link

I was using the comparasin of what we were taught as children.. within the scholastic parameters of the times.. to how things have changed now...

We dare to widen the gaps in the history of man... We are still hesitant to place any civilization past the 7 to 9 thousand year mark for fear of being ridiculed by peers until recently when the Gobekli Tepi digs came up proving that civilizations could be placed back to 12,000 years plus.

I am surprised that this ground breaking ( as far as crediting humanity as a lot smarter than they thought during what they consider as being the Neanderthol ages) dig has halted

My link

Further exploration of this site could change all we know or have assumed of the history of mankind.. seems to have been untouched.. untampered with for over 8 to 10,000 years.. Imagine what we could find here.

This discovery of this site has been around since 1994... Only 5% of this site has been explored.. It is a treasure trove of awesome artistic constructive talent...

Yet why have things stopped..

My brother was only there a couple of weeks ago and said that apart from what has been shown to the world of this amazing site.. little more has been done here.. No funding???

Why? I bet if they took world wide fund raising for this dig..hired the top historians.. archaeologists .. geologists.. using a reality type archeology show ^_^like Hawass' show 'Chasing Mummies'

My link

to help fund this.. why not?

I'd be an avid viewer...

Karnak, Brittany is 4000 BC or more.

That's 6000 years old to my reckoniong.

The megalyths in Malta are 5000 years old.

Is it because you copy and post, but never actually read all that's written there??

That is what I think you do, and yoy are not ther only one here.

Skip past what doesn't appeal to you and copy and post what does.

If you read my little post properly.. I was complaining about the old education system..They beat the historical parameters into you in those times that reflected the religious teachings of the time... Just an example of my disfunctional education.

Not that I hold with these views... I really think we go back much older than this.. that maybe some time in the future we may find evidence of civilizations that go back 100's of thousands of years...

I have seen your posts about this, so I wonder why you conveniently forget about it.

See it is amazing how things .. views can be twisted here... :unsure2:

I cut an paste.. so that I don't accidently twist the author's worlds.. like you seem to have done in this example.. '

Maybe I just wasn't being very clear with how I described my early education....

...but some of the documentaries we see about the education systems in America and so forth seems pretty sad...

Like anywhere else, there are good places and there are bad places. A blanket statement of the American educational system, one way or the other, is being less than honest. And I've NEVER seen a school system here using textbooks that were decades outdated. No even in southern West Virginia, which in the past has been associated with the stereo-typical "uneducated hillbilly".

We are still hesitant to place any civilization past the 7 to 9 thousand year mark for fear of being ridiculed by peers until recently when the Gobekli Tepi digs came up proving that civilizations could be placed back to 12,000 years plus.

One of the problems with that is that many like to throw the term 'civilization' at anything that happens to be found. One of the criteria, and an important one, for something being called a civilization is formalized writing. Sumer had it, Egypt followed closely behind. Gobekli Tepe in this regard does NOT qualify as a civilization as there is no evidence of said writing. There isn't even any evidence for permanent settlements in or around Gobekli Tepe. Science is hesitant, at least in part, because of this lack of qualifications. We also, AFAIK, can't even attribute a specific culture to it yet.

Further exploration of this site could change all we know or have assumed of the history of mankind..

That's a bit presumptive, IMO. While it will add greatly to what we currently know, it will not have the effect of changing "all we know" as you are implying. It is, after all, only one of possibly countless other sites that have existed in the past.

Reality shows and archaeology are a bad combination, IMO. The one thing professional archaeologists and others DON'T NEED is some company with a filming crew set up in and around an archaeological dig. The logistics themselves, would be a potential disaster in the making.

A few scientists, such as Carl Sagan, have written about Von Däniken's paleocontact and extraterrestrial visitation claims. Although Sagan did not rule out the possibility of visitation, he insisted that "extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence", which Van Däniken fails to provide.

Von Däniken has also knowingly put forward fraudulent evidence to advance his hypotheses, such as photographs of pottery "depicting UFOs". Allegedly from an archaeological dig dating back to the biblical era. The PBS television series Nova determined that this was a fraud, and even located the potter who made them. When confronted with this evidence, von Däniken argued that the deception was justified because some people would only believe his theories if they saw actual proof.(Horizon, BBC documentary, The Case of the Ancient Astronauts, first aired 3/8/78.)

In The Gold of the Gods Von Daniken claimed to have been guided through artificial tunnels under Ecuador containing a library with metal tablets. The man who he claimed showed him these alleged tunnels, Juan Moricz, told Der Spiegel (German magazine) that all of Von Daniken's descriptions came from a long conversation and that the photos in the book had been modified. Von Däniken eventually told Playboy in an interview, that although he had seen the library and other places he'd described, he had also fabricated some of the events to add interest to his book. (Playboy magazine, Volume 21 Number 8, 1974)

The man admits having invented and fabricated evidence used in his claims, he's a self admitted fraud. Why on earth should I take anything of what he says seriously at all? Or anybody who subscribes to his claims for that matter.

There's a nice article here, that analyzes Von Däniken's writings and seems to think he plagiarizes quite a bit from Lovecraft and the Cthulhu mythos the latter created. Seems he didn't even use his own ideas!

All this should tell you something about who we are dealing with.

Lets not forget Catalhoyuk nor the Jomon people and their advanced pottery who were semi-sedentary.

There are a number of 'pre-civilization' sites prior to '5,000'BCE and more will be coming up. Each year more areas undergo field surveys and other methods of testing.

Yep the best story I've yet seen about our early advance to civilization comes from the scientist, not fringe researchers who often contradict each other. The most interesting information comes from genetic research and from the boring old fossil pollen people who can determine remarkable reconstructions of neolithic and other eras environments.

If it is a way to help finance digs.. research... then maybe it is..

The reality show hasn't slowed down Hawass...

My link

It actually increased support...

Why not have something like that for Gobleki ?

My link

Last year, for instance, French archaeologists working at Djade al-Mughara in northern Syria uncovered the oldest mural ever found. "Two square metres of geometric shapes, in red, black and white - like a Paul Klee painting", said Eric Coqueugniot, of the University of Lyon, who is leading the excavation.

My link

Coqueugniot describes Schmidt's hypothesis that Gobekli Tepe was a meeting point for rituals as "tempting", given its spectacular position. But surveys of the region were still in their infancy. "Tomorrow, somebody might find somewhere even more dramatic."

Vecihi Ozkaya, the director of a dig at Kortiktepe, 120 miles east of Urfa, doubts the thousands of stone pots he has found since 2001 in hundreds of 11,500-year-old graves quite qualify as that. But his excitement fills his austere office at Dicle University in Diyarbakir.

My link

"Look at this", he said, pointing at a photo of an exquisitely carved sculpture showing an animal, half-human, half-lion. "It's a sphinx, thousands of years before Egypt. South-eastern Turkey, northern Syria - this region saw the wedding night of our civilisation."

or some of those newly discovered South American digs.. that seem to be unprotected and largely ignored for lack of finance.

This is a rather awesome shot of Gobleki..

My link

To say some random hunters and gatherers built that 12,000 years ago.. groups that knew nothing about agriculture.. community living..weren't eligible to be classified as belonging to a civilization... because there was no surviving evidence of written communication... how many books will survive a good 10 to 12 thousand years.. especially if they were dug over with tons of earth...

Archaeologist Klaus Schmidt downplays extravagant spiritual interpretations of Göbekli Tepe, such as the idea, made popular in the press, that the site is the inspiration for the Biblical Garden of Eden. But he does agree that it was a sanctuary of profound significance in the Neolithic world. He sees it as a key site in understanding the transition from hunting and gathering to agriculture, and from tribal to regional religion.

Schmidt and his colleagues estimate that at least 500 people were required to hew the 10- to 50-ton stone pillars from local quarries, move them from as far as a quarter-mile away, and erect them. How did Stone Age people achieve the level of organization necessary to do this? Hauptmann speculates that an elite class of religious leaders supervised the work and later controlled the rituals that took place at the site. If so, this would be the oldest known evidence for a priestly caste--much earlier than when social distinctions became evident at other Near Eastern sites

The mere organization of this required some form of settlement.. note taking..planing.. written communication...

Like the city of

My link

this apparent city was thriving at least 4000 B. C. - which is 6,000 years ago and functioning independently from Sumer..

The huge city is spread over 750 acres and is believed to have been home to up to 25,000 people. The archeologists found five large stone ovens large enough to feed huge numbers of people. This seems to indicate that this was a community with industries. These may have included bakeries and breweries. Also, astonishing is the fact that the living quarters were double walled with a 2-inch gap between the two walls to encourage airflow. This seems to be a primitive form of air conditioning since the summer temperatures in that region could reach 40C and above. Discoveries include stone gods, jewelry, porcelain figurines of lions, leopards, bears and horses, together with porcelain-like pottery, 7,000 beads, more than a hundred clay seals with hieroglyphics used to record trade transactions, and a large protective city wall.

Maybe once the uncover more of the Gobleki site they may find similar evidence of civilization. Such skills as found in the Gobleki area needs to be learned.. and requires time to support teach and learn these skills.. It couldn't all have been done with just a few men.

It also hasn't done Egyptology any favors, either, and that's what matters.

And again, there is also no evidence of permanent habitation nor domestication of agricultural produce, no widescale farming nor animal husbandry in or near Gobekli Tepe that would lend credence to a civilization. You're once again jumping on the bandwagon of "it must have been a civilization". Why? Cultures were fully capable of doing great things while not quite making it to the 'civilization' level.

The mere organization of this required some form of settlement.. note taking..planing.. written communication...

Not really, IMO. All it requires is an idea and a means to implement it.

It couldn't all have been done with just a few men.

AFAIK, no one said it was.

Our present definition of civilization is a designation created to allow classification. It has no meaning beyond that. When a social organization doesn't quite make it to the full definition (and there are several competing ones I do believe) it is called a pre-civilization, proto-civilization, etc

There has been some concern and discussion on whether we should amend the the parameters of civilization which were set in the late 19th century (I do believe)

Sorry CS, but if you still believe him or Sitchin, when they are self admitted liars and proven wrong, you are naive beyond redemption.

I watched the videos, and it's the same as was shown before.

The reason it looks like towns is because of how they organize the dig.

Maybe the real houses of any towns were made of dried mud, and are now eroded to a point they are not distinguishable from the rest of the soil.

My brother was there at Gobleki Tepi only a couple of weeks ago.. said that they have only uncovered a small portion of the digs.. that it appears to be a matter of funding.. but will question him further the next time I see him.

He was also at Cappadocia and visited some of the underground cities.. checked out many of those ancient places.. said they were amazing..

My link

Wasn't too impressed with the church/cave of Peter..

:rolleyes: He was more impressed with the amazing petrol stations they had there.. Said they were almost like an airport with what it had to offer.. as well as amazingly good and reasonably priced food.

He loved it there.. spent around 2 month touring many of the ancient sites around Turkey..He loved Antioch , said that the Museum there had the most amazing displays of ancient mosaics.. said there were rooms and floors full of them .

I believe that there were 'truths' there... That like I said before.. that throughout history we have had influences .. visits.. from other worldly beings... that history constantly refers to Gods.. Angels.. Star People.. They couldn't have dreamed them up... that there are too many references to them from all over the world for it just to have been imagination of a few. That there has been some amazing architcures.. civilizations in the past.. technology ... The amazing Baalbeck.. and still the construction of those pyramids..

We can see now how quickly many building deteriate these days.. I don't see any of the modern constructions lasting even a fraction of the times some of the ancient building have.. or us being able to construct some of what is left..

Imagine what has been torn down over the ages and repurposed???

Too many legends .. sacred tales.. hint at magic tools.. metaphysical powers of people that now in our world we can just begin to understand with our scientific and Sci Fi sophistication..

With the amount of artifacts that have been destroyed.. libraries and arts destroyed over the centuries.. with only rumors.. legends remaining...

it stands to reason that something really important.. unacceptable to political.. religious dynasties of the times have been kept secret..

If you look into the readily available ceremonies.. and stories and rituals of respect to some 'being' of many of the well known secret societies.. you must suspect there is something to Van Daniken's... Sitchen's assumptions... gut instincts..

There are enough clues everywhere... many ancient cultures have legends about how "gods" used some sort of powerful magic to build massive constructions over night.. how sounds /vibrations were involved..

Later mentions of how other jealous? gods were involved in destructions of these 'sudden civilizations'... about fires from heavens... ( it could have been comets and asteroids.. as some suggest.. as their proximity seems to match with the destruction of various civilizations)

It just requires a change of perspective..

It just seems to make sense..

Many pols have been taken and up to 70% of most countries believe in UFO's .. ET's..

Thus suggesting that they have visited...

If not just now.. why not in the past.. certainly helps with all the old 'fairy myths' of elves abducting people.. demon.. angel stories... abductions.. resulting in pregnancies ,strange or supernatural offspring. .. like the Jesus and some other famous prophets.. mystics of the times... ... of people saying they were abducted and found themselves in strange lands... when they came back.. many years had passed..

Just makes more sense..

If it was all just empty make believe stories... why is there so much more talk about UFO's.. sightings.. why are many disclosures going on at the moment?

Why are NASA and other large organizations in the middle of starting colonization projects of other worlds.. planets... moons.. making us the ET's to other worlds.

At the speed of our technology.. we may see our children colonizing other worlds this century.

Maybe these organizations Know !!!

The latest Mars adventure found that Mars has soil just like the soil found in our backyards.. fully capable of growing plants.. that there is water and ice on Mars..

That we can reasonably survive on Mars utilizing the water ice.. there in the lava tubes.. creating our own atmosphere domes.. we have done research planting crops in underground tunnels finding that they grow faster.. and better in these controlled environments than they do on the surface of the earth... That humans can survive in these environments... later planting crops to terraform the land.. building an atmosphere..

Are all these people 'betting people'... or are they putting their money on a sure thing... Knowing it can be done.. has been done .. many times before.. Huge profits involved for mining rites..

Trips to space.. and the Bigelow's new space hotels have already been pre sold for hundreds of thousands of dollars..

Just simple logic...

What do they say of prophets.. or people who try to explore new grounds of perception .. reality???

No ... there was another one.

you must suspect there is something to Van Daniken's... Sitchen's assumptions... gut instincts..

That something would be the availability of gullible suckers to prey upon. It's a lucrative business.

What fascinates me the most in the video, is the pyramidal artifact from Ecuador ...

234x60.jpg

13 step pyramid, identical to the one from the dollar bill ...

Annuit cœptis - "He approves (or has approved) [our] undertaking(s)"

Novus ordo seclorum - "New order of the Ages"

One could tell what they meant ... something along the lines of "He approves [our] order", "He approves [the] Novus ordo seclorum" ??

All this a Coincidence??

I'd like to say that there are no co incidences.. especially ones that seem to be so obvious...

Easier if you tell me the minute count of the program...

What amazes me is the Genetic Disk... at 26 minutes 40 seconds... and the birthing tools out of lydite... found in Comumbia... how each piece fits every kind of hand.. One piece looked like the statues from Easter Island... 31 minutes 40 seconds.. The one called the 'dentist's chair are 32 minutes.. also looks like the Sci Fi version of seats found on space ships.. ET Tools?? for helping with the difficult births of the new Genetically Modified Humans or hybrids ???

Then another Easter Island style 30 cm artifact found in Columbia.. 32mins 50 sec ..

Ah.. found it Guinea.. of West Africa... The half portrait of a lady done on a Granite stone.. 34 mins. 35 sec.

!!

150 meters from the top of the head to the torso...

said to have been done 10,000 > 12,000 years ago...

Italian Geologist Prof. Pitoni took these photos.. He checked the surrounding soils and rocks.. and it was his estimate.

Some more artifacts found around this site..

One of those legends has its origin in Sierra Leone,Western Africa. It is telling of mysterious stones and sculptures.While digging for diamonds native workmen found stone sculptures.The objects were about 40cm tall; their origin is unknown. According to the geological stratums in which they were found, they must be 2.500 to 17.000 years old. Where do those mysterious stone figures come from It says that in ancient times a people of angels lived in heaven.As a cause of bad behaviour Allah banned them from the divine empire.To punish the angels he transformed them into men and sends them to Earth.The found statues of Nomoli are said to be a reminder of those once divine creatures. Scientists, especially ethnologists, developed numerous theories about those figures.They do not have the same opinion because the origin and the purpose of the sculptures are unexplained. Some native tribes like the Mande and Kissi in Guinea found such statues of Nomolis on their fields. So a “vegetation cult” developed that is seen in connection with death.They put the stones on their fields and made them sacrifices if the harvest was rich. If harvest was bad the Nomoli have been punished ritually and whipped. The faces of the Nomoli figures show typical characteristics:They have a very big nose like an eagle with nostrils, a big mouth, sometimes showing teeth and significant eyes.Their skulls are flat. The sculptures have various poses and expression.The majority are human figures, some riding on horses, most of them sitting with crossed legs or on their knees. Some put their faces in their hands. Sometimes the figures have weapons or a shield. Angelo Pitoni, an Italian geologist, deals with the Nomoli statues. He took some organic samples from the places the figures where found.

. In West African cultures those sculptures are worshiped a lot. Most of the figures have been found in Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea and on the Ivory coast: Partially they laid in geological stratums that were 10 to 12 meters beyond the surface. So they have to be very old. Some of the pieces are said to be found in a depth of 50 meters. The natives often call the figures “men in stone”. But some see them as guardian god and god who brings luck .

The "Lady of Mali is located on a rock face high and uniform over a steep precipice and is best preserved on the west side because it is more sheltered than the east side.

. The head is about 25 meters high, while the whole sculpture is about 150 meters high, and underneath the rock continues to peak for another 200 meters, bearing in mind that the entire mountain on which it is located 1500 meters high.. The face looks to the south-south east, but facing slightly downward to the large surrounding valley, and strangely the entire sculpture is of a different color from the geological formation to which it belongs.

La roccia sulla quale è scolpita la “Dama del Mali” è un'emersione di granito con una faglia intermedia che la divide in due con un bradisismo che spinge verso l'alto la parete dove è la scultura e spinge verso il basso la parte opposta. The rock on which is carved the "Lady of Mali" emersion of granite is a term that the fault splits into two with a bradyseism that pushes up the wall where the sculpture and pushes down on the opposite side . L'effetto di scorrimento causato dal bradisismo è di qualche centinaia di metri, per cui la parte di roccia che contiene la “Dama del Mali” risulta molto più in alto del resto del monte. The scrolling effect is caused by bradyseism a few hundred yards, so part of rock that contains the "Lady of Mali" is much higher than the rest of the mountain. Consequently the work was executed before the bradyseism and therefore much lower than the current position.

In short, Snape said, according to the type of analysis bradyseism, the sculpture is the minimum age of 20,000 years.

Because of its regal appearance and what looks like a crown, this sculpture seems to be a queen can not be identified as not due to any notion held by modern man, since theoretically, when it was carved with the "Lady of Mali" did not exist officially civilization so advanced that they can make a similar work, not to mention the Skystone that even today you can understand how they have produced.

By analyzing the geographical structure in which there is, you get the idea that the sculpture has taken place in remote times when the water came near the mountain where there is the "Lady of Mali," especially since there seems to be carved on a kind the rocks to look at an expanse of water, probably a large lake or the ocean.

Moreover, the "Lady of Mali" seems to be logically connected to the "Skystone", so draw the boundaries of an ancient advanced civilization that extended from Sierra Leone to Guinea (but perhaps also in Mali), dating to a period ranging from 12,500 to 35,000 years ago. This is actually very possible, since there are archaeological finds tangible existence of advanced civilizations in the world at that time, as evidenced by the many underwater structures off the coast of Cuba and the huge underground structure at Yonaguni (Japan ), both the result of advanced civilizations developed in the last ice age, ranging from just 12,500 to 35,000 years ago.

A questo punto è evidente l'esistenza anche in quelle zone dell'Africa di un'antichissima civiltà evoluta oramai dimenticata, forse proprio Atlantide, di cui ci rimangono ampie tracce concrete, come i resti di materiali artificiali e la gigantesca scultura scoperti da Angelo Pitoni. At this point it is clear that there even in those parts of Africa of an ancient civilization evolved by now forgotten, perhaps Atlantis, of which there are ample traces concrete, as the remains of artificial materials and the gigantic sculpture discovered by Angelo Pythons .. Accordingly, it is obvious that such a civilization has left other traces consisting of the wide area where it seems to have developed, but it should not be surprising that not yet been found, since the archaeological research in this area continues to be nothing, apart from the few attempts of the brave explorer Angelo Pythons.

. Angelo Snape is unfortunately dead, so it will be for others to unravel the mysteries of his discoveries. If you want to be skeptical, it can be argued that in the end it remains unclear if the lady of Mali is truly a man-made structure or is an incredible freak of nature, but seems to fall in front of the Skystone skepticism even harder.

Where is the proof that this is not a fake? Because as far as I'm concerned it is, it's just too coincidental and perfect to not to be.
