At 17,000 years, this unusual Nomoli figure is also the oldest. A small metal ball was hidden in a hollow space inside it. An analysis showed that it is made from chrome and steel. However, the metal ball was already in the figure when it was found. Think about it as old as it is how did they work that sphere in there.
Locals in Sierra Leone, Africa were searching for diamonds when they came across a set of extraordinary stone figures, these figures are predominantly human, with their features reflecting multiple human races.However, some of the figures are of a semi-human form – hybrids of both human and animal like the one below that looks reptilian and other species of Ets.
These figures are extremely old, with some estimates dating them as far back as 17,000 BC. However, some aspects of the figures – namely the high melting temperatures that would have had to have been used to create them, and the presence of steel manipulated into perfectly spherical balls – suggest they were constructed by a civilization that would be considered highly advanced for making these under extreme temperature.
Its time if they were indeed constructed around 17,000 BC. Overall, the finding sets forth intriguing questions as to how and when the Nomoli statues were created, and what purpose they may have served to those who created them.
The statutes form part of multiple ancient legends in Sierra Leone!
The ancient inhabitants believed that angels had once lived in the Heavens. One day, as a punishment for causing bad behavior,like in Anunaki God turned the angels into humans and sent them to Earth. The Nomoli figures serve as representations of those figures, and as a reminder of how they were banished from the Heavens and sent to Earth to live as humans. Another legend dictates that the statues represent the former kings and chiefs of the Sierra Leone region, and that the local Temne people would perform ceremonies during which they would treat the figures as if they were the ancient leaders. The Temne were eventually displaced from the area when it was invaded by the Mende, and the traditions involving the Nomoli figures lost. While various legends may provide some insight into the origins and purposes of the figures, no single legend has been definitively identified as the source of the statues. Today, some natives in Sierra Leone view the statues as figures of good luck, intended as guardians. They place the statues in gardens and fields in hopes of having a bountiful harvest. In some cases, in times of bad harvest, the Nomoli statues are whipped ritualistically as punishment.
There is much variation in the physical properties and appearance of the many Nomoli statues. They are carved from different materials, including soapstone, ivory, and granite. Some of the pieces are small, with the larger ones reaching heights of 11 inches. They vary in colour, from white to yellow, brown, or blue.
Researchers discovered that their colour was similar to cobalt, some pieces had been analysed in different labs around the world, now the result from the institute for precious stones of the museum of natural history was baffling, it showed that the stones were made artificially, the pulverised samples taken consist of 77% oxygen, 20% carbon and lime, silicon and traces of an alien element (Iridium) however there is no iridium on earth unless it was brought here.
I do know Earth has a Hidden History, though the original function is obscure but the representation of nose- and ear-rings on some figures and of shields and weapons on others would suggest that they portray some kind of unknown culture. The date of their production has been a source of speculation. Stylistically they bear a resemblance to figures carved on Sapi-Portuguese ivories (q.v.) made by Sierra Leone artists for Portuguese patrons at the end of the 15th and first quarter of the 16th century, but contemporary Portuguese sources say nothing about stone sculpture in Sierra Leone at this time, and the carving of the nomoli figures may have been discontinued many years earlier. The Mende who find the stone figures make no claim to whom and how they made them but use them as ‘rice gods’ to encourage the growth of their crops as it is believed to come from the skies.
