Just poking around the Internet looking for possible images of people from the pre-Younger Dryas era, and I thought it was interesting that some of the older figurines or large statues feature people holding their hands on their bellies. They also seem to have squarish heads (the Easter Island statues had cylindrical hats), fairly large and mostly flat noses, and round eyes with no apparent epicanthic fold ("slanted" eyelids). Maybe larger brow ridges, too. They either have no beards or a short-cropped pointed beard. Sort of the way the Phonecians are sometimes portrayed.


Sulawesi, Indonesia


Easter Island


Gobekli Tepe, Turkey

I suppose that if you're going to make a figure out of straight rock, like a totem pole, there are only a few ways you can do the hands. There are variations such as the Mongolian deer stone figures where one hand is usually holding a cup and the other is down in a lap. But I don't think they depict the same people. Not many good images of what the Clovis people looked like. I wonder if they might have looked like this.

Interesting.

My theory is that long long ago there was a global society that stayed connected and traded together using ships.

To me, it seems that the examples you provided are depictions of MALE figures with the hands placed in a fashion that draws attention to their PHALLUS. Many ancient depictions of humanoid figures accent the sex organs or mammary glands, such as the Venus of Willendorf with huge breasts/vulva (and belly). These may have been used in fertility rituals.

They remind me of what gamers look like today. Holding something in there hands. Or it was just easier to carve out that way.

first thought was it's the best way to keep your statues arms from breaking off.

but then why wouldn't they put them by their sides, or one hand on the side or something?

is it a gang sign by the people who built them?

Perhaps these totems try to remind to everybody how total dick heads their leaders were, right before causing the global cataclysm...

if they made the hand or arm sticking out, in wind and weather they would break or kids would climb them later and again will break them. thats why.

i do like a graham hancock related thread. to me the evidence for a more ancient(advanced) civilisation is undeniable. could go on for years.

Sure, but there are other ways to do it. Nice mustache.

I can only assume that if you make a big statue of somebody, they're probably important in some way and not just some random dude.

It's a reasonable assumption. I don't know if it's accurate or not.

Well, theoretically these holdovers from the Lost Age knew a lot of stuff about medicine as well as astronomy / astrology and how to build structures out of ridiculously huge rocks. So, maybe.

That's very true. There is (or was) a perfectly circular fence around the tree on the high street in front of my flat. It has been mangled, squashed, dented, chipped simply from kids hanging off it, swinging off it, climbing up it and into the gap.
Even in the shopping mall, put a metal sculpture of a large animal like an elephant or dinosaur there and just about every kid will want to climb it.

It's a Buddhist meditation pose or posture.

The Gate of the Sun in Tiwanaku is of unknown age. It depicts the pre-Incan sun god Viracocha. Each of his hands holds a staff often assumed to represent a thunder bolt. But his hands have one thumb and only three fingers grasping his staffs. His little finger is missing even though it should have been visible, given his long fingers.

I wonder why?

It could not have been a mistake by those who carved the gate because the 48 chasquis (angelic messengers) depicted on the bas-relief ALSO show one hand with a thumb and three fingers grasping a single staff (the other hand is not depicted). So why did the unknown culture that built Tiwanaku believe gods and heavenly creatures had only three fingers and a thumb?
The mummified bodies found in Nazca, Peru have three fingers and a thumb......

Coincidence? I doubt it.

Don't forget the purse carried by very important looking
people/creatures: (also bracelets)


Gods

I think hands being very evident and important were placed because they were over weapons
or a force field device that only the elite possessed.
