Fig. 1 Statue stands as tall as a two story house. Compare to nearby display
case. Note how they carefully enclosed and lighted this statue.
As you read and see the
proof in this article, you will see there are more mysteries about
this statue than what is stated in a recent popular German article.
Idol stands in a case on display at the
Yekaterinburg History Museum in Germany. It is believed
to be the oldest wood statue ever found. Carved from 159
year old larch wood, it is covered with still deciphered Mesolithic era
is believed to be approximately 9,500 years old. A grant was recently
received to fund carbon dating work to within 50 years. We will have to
wait until 2015 to have a accurate age. [1
recent work discovered figures of two gray-like figures on the wall
of the queen's chamber inside the Great Pyramid. There is little
chance of mistaking the large difference between grays and human
beings. Grays are well known to have a large head, thin neck, large
eyes and a very small mouth.
2 Face and neck. Keep this dark patina in mind as you read on 
no sealant was applied for preservation then a patina this dark requires
great age. Is it possible the eyes were removed in ancient times? One
counter-argument might be that ancient people were not able to carve rounded
eyes. Yet this argument is refuted by the overall shape of the rounded
head and neck in Fig. 3 below.

Is this a face
and neck like that of a human being? Or some other being? Note how the
wood has a lighter color without a patina than it did in a closeup photo
apparently taken on a table in a lab (Fig. 2.) This is not possible
Work is underway
to decode symbols which cover the figure. What happens if the messages
on the statue are inconsistent with current archeological science? Will
messages found be honestly stated as they are, or covered up like many
other inconvenient discoveries have been? It seems counter-intuitive to
believe that with all the messages carved on it and all the detail it
has, that a ancient artist would have left the eyes out.

cannot explain these blatant differences. Museum display shows two metal
wires which curve over the top of the forehead and another wire around
the neck to hold it in place. Wires should not be mistaken as differences
in the two photos.
Blue and red
arrows point to lines and cracks in the wood which do not match.
Circled area shows different chins, with chin outline of museum
version apparently restored. Clearly this is not the same statue. Is
the elaborately constructed museum display a cloned copy?
Russians send Germany a fake idol? How many versions of this “unique”
statue exist? Will Russia be apologizing to Germany before carbon
dating reveals the fake? Perhaps Germany already knows the
glass-enclosed version is a fake. It makes one ask how many other
museum displays in Germany and around the world are fakes, but are
displayed as originals.

dark shiny patina is GONE in both faces of figure 4 which is clearly

discovered in 1890 in the vicinity of modern Kirovgrad while mining
gold. Five-meters high, it was found under a four-meter layer of
peat. Why are photos of the face different in all three photos?
