Constellations in the Orion and Milky Way Depicted on 6,000-year-old Monument – The Inga Stone

As you can already guess, this ancient star map is amongst the most beautiful recreations out there as it depicts some of the most beautiful constellations in the Orion and most importantly even some of the less known stars from the Milky Way.

There are a ton of symbols that are obviously meant to represent animals, fruits, humans, and constellations, but a lot of them are unrecognizable to this very day, as many believe them to be depictions of creatures from other planets.

This was discovered in the municipality of Inga, in the Brazilian state of Paraiba. Often referred to as the Pedra do Inga or the Inga stone, it is the most famous rock formation here as it covers a total of over 250 square meters which is all drawn on from top to bottom.

On the surface, you can see stars and spirals, animals and flowers amongst others, but what is really impressive is the fact that on top of its vertical wall of 46 meters in length and 3.8 meters in height no expert was able to discern what it could mean to begin with.

The spirals, in particular, are especially strange as it appears as they might even have carvings of ancient astronomers on them, to begin with.

Its exact age is unknown, although the rock in itself dates back to around 6,000 years ago or so.
A total of 400 carvings were discovered on it. This was studied back in 1976 by Francisco Pavia Alemany as he was amongst the first to acknowledge the fact that it was a star map amongst other things.
