Shigir Idol ~ The Idol, twice as ancient as the Egyptian Pyramids, is the oldest wooden statue in the world, estimated as having been constructed approximately 9,500 years ago, and preserved as if in a time capsule in a peat bog on the western fringe of Siberia. It's covered with symbols and pictograms and the geometrical ornament had some meaning. The difficulty of interpretation is the possible multiple related meanings. Scientists wonder if it's a lost written language or coded?
