I don't know - seems suspect. If those carvings were made 2,000 to 5,000 years ago, and have been worn by river water for that long (not to mention rain), wouldn't those carvings have been worn away by now?

My question is, if they could draw circles, why draw squared faces?

It certainly is intriguing the square face. I tried digging but I came up short.
I couldnt find any evidence of square faces in other cultures. does anybody know of any?

There was a post these days that shows a rupest picture of what appears to be a ufo and a creature with a suit and a squared helmet.
