Many historic architectural treasures are still concealed and waiting to be uncovered all across the world.
Angelo Pitoni was an agronomic, geologist, and botanist. He was an emerald and gold mine discoverer as well as a Lapis Lazuli expert.
During his travels around Siera Leone, he came upon an amazing find: an antique sculpture that may be a relic of an ancient African culture.
Mali’s Lady is a fictional character.
Pitoni discovered an antique sculpture of a lady carved into a mountain, or perhaps the mountain is the sculpture itself, on the boundary between Siera Leone and Mali. A woman’s form extends out from Mount Lour itself at a height of 1500 meters.
Pitoni decided that this is a hand-made sculpture with a 12,000-year age after extensive observation and analysis.
Pitoni stated the statue is placed in the north of Conakry City, near the Mali border, in an interview with journalist Carmen Machado. Its age is estimated to be roughly 12,000 years old, according to the geologist.
There are also caverns with mummies in that region, which are guarded by people who claim they are their Atlantean ancestors.
Professor Pitoni died in 2009, leaving behind numerous mysteries that he had unearthed but never divulged.
The discovery of the Lady of Mali is a contentious one that will keep academics busy for years to come.
