This strange piece of rock and megalithic art was actually discovered not too long ago alongside the Golan and Galilee area where the famous 4,200-year-old dolmens were discovered already
According to Gonen Sharon, the main author of the study, this is especially strange as we know absolutely nothing about these dolmens, to begin with. We know that this is the oldest example of zoomorphic rock art in the area for sure, but we don’t know who could have possibly authored this, to begin with.
Who could have erected these monuments in ancient times and more specifically, why does this following carving depict what appears to be a humanoid face?
That’s right, this is by far the strangest part of this discovery, as Sharon states that this new discovery changes everything. Since it was placed in the dead center of a circle of smaller rocks from the Quiryat Shemona dolmen field, this obviously means that it was of significant importance, to say the least to the natives that carved it, to begin with.
The precision that was needed for every other carving means that whatever was drawn here was meant to be drawn like this, so its resemblance to a human face might not be coincidental after all.
Many believe that this portrays an ancient human that led them most likely in ancient times, but there are some that also believe this to be a depiction of an early humanoid alien that showed itself to them and they decided to commemorate it by creating this carving.
