A composite mythological being with the body of a lion and the head of a human being is present in the traditions, mythology and art of South and South-East Asia Variously known as purushamriga (Sanskrit, "man-beast"), purushamirugam (Tamil, "man-beast"), naravirala (Sanskrit, "man-cat") in India, or as nara-simha (Sanskrit, "man-lion") in Sri Lanka, manusiha or manuthiha (Pali, "man-lion") in Myanmar, and norasingh (from Pali, "man-lion", a variation of the Sanskrit "nara-simha") or thep norasingh ("man-lion deity"), or nora nair in Thailand.
Conservators experimented by making a replica of Lion Man, calculating that it would take a highly skilled carver at least 400 hours using flint tools (two months’ work in daylight).
Even more exciting than the discovery of new pieces, the sculpture’s age has been refined using radio-carbon dating of other bones found in the strata. This reveals a date of 40,000 years ago, while until recently it was thought to be 32,000 years old. Once reconstruction is completed, several tiny, unused fragments of the mammoth ivory are likely to be carbon dated, and this is expected to confirm the result.
I am really starting to wonder if there was a civilization that we have yet to discover or that we are not being told about . 40,000 years is pretty impressive . I also find it interesting that they found this in Germany that would of been partially covered under ice sheets during the the last ice age
I wonder what we would of found in Canada and any place in the northern hemisphere for ancient civiliations if not buried under miles of ices and crushed and ground into nothingness .
A lot of us know what the answers are to the connection to art in ancient civilizations but we cant talk about here on ATS.
Its almost as if there was some "proto" Civilization that has been lost to the ages
Stone cant be carbon dated so when historians archeologists say how old Sphinx is they make up a date which comfortably fits in with the main stream model of Egyptian antiquity. It could be 40,000 and more than that as well.
