A keen-eyed archaeologist claims to have found some of the oldest artwork ever - carved faces 200,000 years old.
The human images were found in 2001 by Pietro Gaietto on an expedition through the Borzonasca district of Italy.

He claims the rock has been sculpted into faces that look in opposite directions; one is bearded with what Gaietto calls an "expressive face".

If this is genuine, the artist would have been an extinct human species that died out about 150,000 years ago.

rest here:
news.bbc.co.uk...

I don't think these are the most convincing sculptures I've ever seen (would you see the face if you weren't looking for it?), but if they are genuine then it shows how far back our intelligence goes, however limited(and again I question the times depicted in The Bible).

I'm wondering, why do you think they sculptered these faces? Was it for memory? For hobbie? Did they have the concept of art then? Any other suggestions?

I found this interesting too. Homo Erectus exited for over a million years, far longer than any other Homonid. Maybe this is one of the reasons why....they could actually think, despite what scientists believe.

Take a look at the last paragraph though. It's so typical.
Anything that threatens to change the status quo....

Yeah came across this before, great story.

Obviously they have to start thinking one of two things now:

1. Ancient man was much more sophisticated than they believed and or,

2. There were in fact ancient societies that were quite advanced and we are seeing but few remnants of it here and there. Quite possibly they are buried deep. Not hard to believe if glaciation covered the entire world and there were also other periodic world change as well as the real concealer of civilization and that is total war!

How could anyone think that this was just carved by natural forces??

Lots of people claim to see Elvis form in their loaf of bread, but that doesnt make it more than a naturaly occuring incident.

also alot of the first civilizations were made of wooden constructs. Wood decomposes really fast so it is extremely hard to trace.

I do not see any faces either. Can someone describe what we should be looking for?

So I'm guessing nobody can discribe where the faces are on the rock?

Actually, faces are being discovered even in places many people frequent -Stonehenge and more importantly the Avebury stone circle are two examples that pop into mind:
BBC(not much info...)
more photos

The Avebury stones are more easily catagorised as either male or female, which seemed to be of great significance to those who erected the stones.

It's commonly known that people can 'see' faces in all kinds of patterns/objects however, humans do seem to have a facination with recreating faces on all manner of objects, from the Sphinx to the Easter Island 'heads' to what god looks like!

Hmm... been trying to find an amusing shaped rock to no avail... oh well.. maybe that's for the better!

Cya ^-^

Perhaps the following site is worth seeing www.edicolaweb.net...
A museum with the Dropa stones, it isn't a rock with a face (I am sorry about that) but an 5.000 year old disc with something alive on it... it is somewhat clearer then the rocks with the faces.

www.violations.dabsol.co.uk... see the botom, there is a cave painting a few thousands km. away which has perhaps the same disc in its hands... and if you look at the background... yes, that's not human i guess.

From violations web site.


There is also some evidence to tie the Dogon claims into Egyptian mythology. The Egyptian dog god Anubis is often identified with Osiris, companion of the goddess Isis. Temple concludes that as Isis herself was identified with Sirius, it is reasonable to suppose that her companion was identified with the companion of Sirius, suggesting that the Egyptians knew of the existence of Sirius B.

Now thats some good scientific reasoning there. Yep the egyptians must definately have known about Sirius B. Did osiris have another companion to represent Sirius C which the Dogon also knew about?

What are you talking about? They suggest it, why are you turning it into some sort of fact? Egyptians were fascinated by Sirius, Allah came from Sirius, Mayans were connected to Sirius, Refaim was connected to Sirius, Dogontribe was connected to Sirius...

I don't understand why it is so funny for you that they see a link between the Sirius of the Dogontribe and that one of the Egyptians, Both come from Sirius according to the Egyptians and the Dogontribe.

But well... if you think it's so funny...

Why do you people have the intention to try to make people think someones thoughts as being crazy? Why can't you just don't laugh and keep on respecting persons which think differently?

there is no such thing as egypt, it was created, and the rumors surrounding it are hardly what was practiced then, yet most want to continue on with the lies...

there will never be peace as long as lies reign...
