I once knew a Saudi dude and he told there are a lot of ancient ruins in Saudi Arabia but for some reason the Saudi authorities kept those areas off limits.

Possibly because it doesn't jive with their present belief system.

Why explore and gain a better understanding of their own history when they can simply fence them off and make it a no go zone?

Some pieces look like very early Christian to me.
The hand gestures in one pic look like
one of JC's common gang signs.

You know what's weird is that many of the mystery schools originate in the Middle East.

Druidism and paganism are separate entities and more about nature than the mystery schools.

It would not be of Jewish origin. Ancient Jews did not make statues, idols, or relief likenesses of people.

Its a mish mosh of artifacts by the looks of it.
I can't wait to see if that is vellum at the bottom.

If legitimate, the gold artifacts are quite interesting. They look to have been bound, like pages of a book...

Star for pointing it out, but it isn’t strictly true. There were Romanized Jews who were okay with statues and stuff. And IIRC there were statues (of other gods, not Yahweh) in Solomon’s temple.

Looks like Zoroaster to me

The gold 'pages' might be Christian. The one on the left looks like a bearded man holding a lamb in his lap, to me anyway.

I think the statues between them are very interesting. Their skulls look elongated or perhaps they are wearing horned helmets? Their hands appear to be held together at the front like some Sumerian statues.

Anyway, just guessing.

Could these have been stolen during the Uprising a few years ago and buried in the desert?

How much more stuff like this has been found over the years, the gold sold on and the rest thrown in the bin..

Even the dead sea scrolls.. Wasn't the guy using pages as fuel for a fire?
I'm surprised this guy handed it back. . I'm sure you can buy a lot of lizards by selling those artifacts..

Quite a lot, Sir Leonard Woolley excavating in Mesopotamia, learned that artefacts from his digs were being discovered at a local market, sold their by his workers.
He offered a bonus payment for such items and the next day the workers went to the market and bought them all back.

Holy Carp, BatMan! You posted something that was not a derisive, heavy handed, vitriol laced attack upon the OP!

Will wonders never cease, comrade....
