Mysterious images of anthropomorphic figures found in Tanzania

Inside a cave located in the Swaga Swaga Nature Reserve in central Tanzania, researchers from the Jagiellonian University (Krakow, Poland) discovered images of strange anthropomorphic figures with huge heads. A total of scientists counted 97 drawings, most of them very well preserved, reports “Profile”.

About the details of the discovery told the lead author of the study Maciej Grzelczyk in an article published in the journal Antiquity. Although the exact age of the petroglyphs is unknown, the researchers suggest that they were made several hundred years ago.

Among the drawings, one scene caught the specialist’s attention. It depicts three anthropomorphic figures with strange large heads, which, according to Gzhelczyk, are “reminiscent of the slanted profile of a buffalo’s head, from which two horns and flexible ears rise.”

Not far from this cave, two more rock drawings were found, which bear a great resemblance to the aforementioned trio, though they are smaller in size. Although there are no symbolic drawings with the anthropomorphization of the buffalo in the current worldview of the Sandawe people who authored these images, parallels can be drawn to some of their ritual aspects. Scientists believe that a new study will help shed light on the mysterious scene.
