World’s Oldest Wooden Idol Is 6000 Years Older Than Stonehenge

Discovered back in 1894 in a peat bog in Russia, Shigir Idol, the world’s oldest wooden idol, is 6,000 years older than Stonehenge.

Tall and slender – the Shigir Idol stands proudly with its height of 9.2 ft at the Sverdlovsk Regional Museum of Local Lore, in Yekaterinburg, Russia. And historically, this impressive work of art is actually more than twice as old as the Great Pyramid (while being 6,000 years older than even Stonehenge), thus making it the oldest (known) wooden sculptural project in the entire world. And the odd part was, instead of some high-end complex or burgeoning settlement, the antediluvian statue was originally discovered (in fragments) in a peat bog in 1894, at a depth of 13 ft, along the eastern slope of the Middle Urals. And even more tantalizing is the notion put forth by some researchers that relates to how the sculpture possibly carries some form of ‘encrypted code’…
