Bulgaria, archaeologists find a 6,000-year-old alien mask at an archaeological site; Original article by Alessandro Brizzi.
As reported by the Russian tabloid Sputnik News, during the latest archaeological investigation into the excavation of the mound of the Provadiya-Solnitsata settlement (“The Salt Pit”), a clay mask or figurine was found that would show an Alien face. The archaeological site where the discovery took place is located in northeastern Bulgaria, a settlement also known as the oldest city in Europe.
The prehistoric clay mask or statuette without a mouth from the late Chalcolithic period, that is, the period before 4000 BC, is one of the many impressive artifacts found in recent excavations in the Salt Pit settlement near Provadiya in Bulgaria. However, it made headlines thanks to its highly intriguing features, and the team investigating Europe’s first prehistoric city, led by Professor Vasil Nikolov of the National Institute and Museum of Archeology in Sofia, dedicated a special statement .
“Many compare the mask or figurine to an alien in a spacesuit.” fifth millennium BC, describes the “alien” artifact as an “atypical plastic art” an anthropomorphic image.
The mask or statuette has a triangular shape and shows the image of an alleged human face, while the reverse (the back) is dented and rough. Each of the two corners on the upper side of the mask or figurine has a small protrusion protruding, “probably stylized ears,” the archaeological team says. The “ears” of the “alien” figure have small holes that were probably used to insert a string and wear or hang the Artifact.
The archaeological team points out that the facial features depicted in the strange 5th millennium BC mask or statuette. they were formed by cutting lines that distinguish thicker and smoother sections. “The face has shaped eyebrows, a thin nose and elliptical eyes. Most likely, the artifact was a status symbol hanging on the chest of the person worthy of it. Interestingly, the artifact has a hint of a mouth, ”explains the archaeological team of the Prehistoric mouthless mask.
“This is certainly not accidental and has its own symbolism. The emphasis is on the eyes: their shape, their size, as well as the smooth vertical bands beneath them, say much more than the missing mouth “, explain the researchers. “Looking into the eyes of the prehistoric mask, one feels power, superiority, wisdom. It’s funny that when you look at this image from a different angle, you can see traces of different emotions, “adds the team.
Nikolov told Bulgarian National Radio that there is no way to know for sure what exactly prehistoric people could have used the 6,000-year-old clay mask or figurine for. Judging by the two holes in the stylized ears of the mouthless mask, it could have hung on a wall, or it could even have been the lid of a ceramic bowl that could be raised or lowered with a thread. In his words, the image of the “alien” mask is a mixture of anthropomorphic and zoomorphic characteristics, and is “categorically connected with the male beginning”.
