THE MYSTERIOUS SAYHUITE STONE HAS OVER 200 GEOMETRIC AND ZOOMORPHIC CARVINGS!
There are plenty of interesting monolithic stones scattered around the world, and each is shrouded in mystery with a fascinating story ready to be told.
One of these massive stones can be found at the Sayhuite archaeological site in Peru.
The ‘Sayhuite stone’ is a mysterious monolith carved with the most intriguing sculptures with 200 Geometric and zoomorphic figures found on it’s surface. The zoomorphic carvings show reptiles, frogs, and felines, all which could represent either deities, key locations of the Inca empire or some other important symbol. It was found at the top of the Concacha hill, and the stone is about two meters long and four meters wide.
But experts believe it was used as some sort of topographic model for hydraulics.
While the exact function of the Sayhuite stone remains a mystery, researcher Dr. Arlan Andrews believes that this monolith was used as a scale model to design, develop, test, and document the properties of water flow for public water projects.
