Sun Faces

20 August 2016

   At http://siberiantimes.com/science/casestudy/features/f0252-found-grave-of… … the body in the grave comes from the Okunev Culture in the Republic of Khakassia. These are thought to be the Siberian ethnic group most closely related to native Americans. The grave is rich in finds and the artwork is especially good, with a date in the Early Bronze Age (Siberia) that was extent between the 25th and 18th centuries BC (roughly contemporary with dynasty 6 – end of Middle Kingdom in Egypt). A clay incense burner is the star of the grave goods as it is decorated with sun shaped faces which match ancient rock art in Siberia.
