Geoglyph discovered on the Zjuratkul Ridge

4 posts in this topic

The geoglyph shows the outline of an animal with four legs, two antlers and a large projecting muzzle. The front legs are shorter and thinner than the hind legs. Antlers are stylized long bent lines. This is obviously a hoofed animal with antlers, such as an elk or a deer, but it is not possible to identify precisely which species is intended, as the antlers do not show any specific features. Unfortunately, the line of the back of the animal (which would allow us to differentiate an elk from a deer) is not visible, as it is hidden by trees. However, the large projecting muzzle suggests that the intention was probably to reproduce the most prominent features of an elk.

Why not a mammoth?

You know, people had a lot of free time back then. Sure, they had to hunt and gather berries, fight off intruders and such, but beyond that what else to do but form religions and create art.
