Prehistoric goddess figurine found at the bosnian pyramids,Visoko!

Neolithic artifacts have been discovered, this month, in several areas of the Visoko valley by locals tilling their fields. In addition to artifacts such as pottery fragments and lithic tools, a prehistoric goddess figurine has been unearthed from Visoko’s fertile soils.

According to Lithuanian archaeologist Marija Gimbutas, in Old Europe the pregnant Vegetation Goddess represented the annual cycle of germination, growth, and harvest. She wrote that ancient agriculturalists understood the parallel between grain seeds growing in the fields and new life growing in the womb. Representation of this parallel is found in many Old European cultures, including the Butmir culture, which existed in Europe between the 6th and 3rd millenium BC.

The pregnant vegetation goddess, popularly known as the earth goddess, or “Mother Earth”, was one of the most-represented female figures in Old European art. Hundreds of pregnant goddess figurines, commonly known as Venus figurines, have been unearthed in European excavations sites dating back to the Neolithic age. 

Old European cultures generally connected the pregnant goddess with food, especially grain and bread. Archaeologists often find pregnant goddess figurines near bread ovens. Farmers throughout prehsitory and history understood cyclical (seasonal) time, and they took advantage of annual cycles with planting and harvest activities, which became rituals.

During her lifetime, Marija Gimbutas identified a diverse and complex range of Neolithic female divinities, including Bird Goddess, Mistress of Animals, Snake Goddess, Deer Mother, Bear Mother, Birth-giver, Nurse, Pregnant Earth Goddess or Earth Mother, and many other female deities. Gimbutas thereby challenged the hypothesis of one “Great Mother” deity for the European Neolithic period.

Gimbutas also identified a rich array of Neolithic male deities, such as the ithyphallic Snake God (a proto-Hermes), a bull- or goat-masked proto-Dionysos, Sorrowful God, a dying and rising Vegetation God, proto-Asklepios, Master of Animals or Forest God, and others.

Gimbutas also deciphered the sacred Old European writing system and the meaning of each of these ideograms is most fully (and beautifully) presented in her book, The Language of the Goddess (1989). Gimbutas postulated that these ideograms were created to symbolise the life energy of nature and of humanity, and that combinations of them could be used to express “sonatas of becoming.”

Pregnant goddess figurines were created from many different raw materials, each possessing unique physical qualities that were likely selected for their different attributes of availability, workability, and/or surface appearance. These figurines have been made from ivory, serpentine, schist, limestone, hematite, lignite, calcite, steatite, fired clay, bone and antler. While they have been the subject of scholarly attention for more than a century, a detailed understanding of the techniques used to create them is still lacking.

Although today those female statuettes are called by most archaeologists “Venus figurines,” based on the assumption that they represent a standard of female beauty, Gimbutas explains that their function was more important than that of a Venus. These functions were the giving of life, the bringing of death, and the bringing of regeneration. According to Gimbutas, the large breasts and buttocks can be associated with the idea of regeneration and abundance.

Tilling the Earth, and Visoko’s Archaeological Heritage

The central part of the access ramp of the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun, ploughed up by the land owner.

Unfortunately, modern farming is destroying dozens of precious archaeological sites in Bosnia every year, most of these sites dating back to Neolithic or Medieval times. Paradoxically, however, farming, which releases artifacts to the modern world, has been a vital force in developing archaeological knowledge. Modern non-intrusive farming practices should be applied in order to preserve Visoko’s historic landscapes. Modern farmers are the direct successors to the generations who worked and lived on the land before them. This valuable legacy is something local people should try to understand, cherish, and protect, for themselves and for future generations.

But managing archaeological sites on cultivated land presents a particular challenge, since regular cultivation – or even a single instance of unusually deep ploughing – can damage hidden artifacts or remains. Hopefully farmers will begin to play a positive role in ensuring that the access ramp of the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun, as well as other archaeological sites in and around Visoko, are passed down unscathed to future generations.

September updates Bosnian Pyramids

Electro technical sciences and physics boffin, Davor Jadrijevic visited the Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids in order to study the electromagnetic field anomalies previously detected on the Pyramid of the Sun and Vratnica tumulus.
During his visit, Jadrijevic visited the Ravne tunnel complex with his equipment to see if there were any registrable anomalies. Specific points of interest included the ‘K2 megalith’.

Designed and built by Jadrijevic and his team, the custom built antenna is linked to a cracked MP3 player which has open source visual signal analyzer software installed.
Copper coils run around the rim of the plate along with inexpensive tinfoil shielding. The antenna is designed to detect only the waves which are perpendicular to the ground ie. a vertical beam.


Later, Jadrijevic met up with Dr Semir & SBRG while carrying out further ultrasound emission investigations on the Tumulus. Impressed with each others gadgetry, a combination of both teams methods and equipment was employed to gather details of the EM energy never before recorded in such detail.

SBRGs equipment for the latest measurements included some top end kit, improving on last months measurements. With them, a Sound Devices 722 Recorder, courtesy of the Finnish Broadcasting company, capable of recording signals up to 50KHz and a AAronia AG Spectrum analyzer combined with the MacbookPro which can detect frequencies between 10Hz-100KHz.


Jadrijevic’s experiments pave the way for his future investigations where he hopes to build a scaled up and closer tuned antenna system for a possibility to utilize the electromagnetism for practical applications ie electricity generation.
However, unlike previous investigations of the EM @ the Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids, this preliminary study proposes the energy exists as pulses rather than continuous beams which according to Jadrijevic, would make the task of generating a usable current more difficult than originally hypothesized.

Bosnian pyramids: Photos of the ravne tunnel complex


posted from:http://forum.davidicke.com/showthread.php?t=118565&page=4

This is probably the best example of a photographed orb within my photos of the Ravne tunnel complex. Ive so many, so no doubt more will turn up.

You see to the right of the photo is another dry stone wall within the tunnel fill which was excavated that day.
These walls indicate to us that the tunnel fill could not have been a natural deposit because dry stone walls dont form in natural deposits!
The Drywalls are positioned at intersects along the main passage where smaller side passages branch off. These are also filled in the same way as the main passageway. The material is unconsolidated and can be pulled from the tunnel walls quite easily.

The board on the floor protects various stones which are below. Larger boulders are placed along the floor of the tunnel at various positions. The actual tunnel floor is 30cm below what we are working on.
The position of these stones almost certainly has some importance and must be studied further.

These are the typical objects that get pulled out daily from the tunnel fill material

Much of this material here is either shaped stone or an artificial composition ie concrete.
Similar material can be identified in situ on the moon pyramid. This could indicate that the tunnels were filled in after the construction of the pyramids. Someone may have filled the tunnels with all the waste material. As you can see much of the material is broken and eroded bricks/tiles.
The white ball of material in the left corner is a sandy limestone. This material may have been used for the creation of a binding agent in the concrete.
The dark coloured artifact (Bottom, centre-left) is part of a larger slab made up of 4 pieces in total.
Each piece was pulled out in close succession over 2 days. There are markings across all four pieces. Someone had broken the complete slab and then buried it within the tunnel.


Here you can see the clear difference in colour between the natural post glacial deposit the tunnels are cut into and the material filling the tunnel.
The tunnel fill is a mix of unconsolidated sand, bands of clay and mixed sized boulders. Orientation of the stones and boulders are random. There is no preference for orientation as there would be if the material were deposited by water.
This and the fact there are dry stone walls within the fill gives us confidence in the idea that the tunnels were purposely blocked up.
The next step is to figure out whether it was blocked up from the outside, or from the inside.


Here is an interesting artifact!
Look closely and you can see the head is that of a bird.
