This odd chunk of rock and megalithic art was unearthed not long ago near the Golan and Galilee area, where the famed 4,200-year-old dolmens were discovered.
This is extremely surprising, according to Gonen Sharon, the study’s main author, because we know nothing about these dolmens to begin with. We know for certain that this is the oldest example of zoomorphic rock art in the area, but we don’t know who could have created it in the first place.
Who might have built these ancient monuments, and why does the accompanying engraving represent what looks to be a humanoid face?
That’s correct, this is by far the strangest aspect of this finding, as Sharon claims that it affects everything.
Because it was put in the dead center of a circle of smaller rocks from the Quiryat Shemona dolmen field, it is apparent that it was of enormous value to the inhabitants who carved it in the first place.
The precision required for every other carving implies that whatever was carved here was intended to be drawn this way, therefore the likeness to a human face may not be coincidence after all.
Many say this depicts an ancient person who led them most likely in ancient times, but some believe it is a depiction of an early humanoid alien that appeared to them and they opted to commemorate it by constructing this carving.
