These mysterious sculptures were found in Sierra Leone (South Africa). They are estimated to have lived for around 17,000-years, according to researchers. It is quite remarkable that the figurine contained a metal ball. Further investigation revealed that the spherical was made from chromium as well as steel.
What is the secret to how that metal sphere got inside the figurines? Local legends say that the sky above the area where the ancient figurines were discovered was turned into stone. That portion of the sky which had become stone fell to the ground in many pieces.
Researchers in the area have determined that these stones contain high levels of Iridium.
Iridium is more abundant in meteorites that in the earth’s core. South African diamond miners found many figures 40-70 cm high while searching for the gems. They were found at approximately 50 meters below the surface.
Some figurines show a hybrid human-animal entity. Figures with a human head and a body are just one example. We don’t know how these figures were created. The techniques used to make these statuettes don’t correspond with technology that existed 17,000 years earlier.
It’s amazing that steel was first used over 17,000 years ago. Steel was only discovered 2,000 years ago.
The belief is that there was an advanced technologically advanced society that lived in this area. It was an extraterrestrial civilisation.
