    Inga stone

    The Stone of Inga is currently one of the most significant archaeological sites in the world, located in the city of Inga within the Paraíba. Besides being one of the most beautiful and can even be named intriguing and interesting. It consists of a rock formation in gneiss. This is a set of stones, where there are applications, whose translation is unknown. Various sources have been identified, and there are many who argue that the Stone of Inga has Phoenician origin. These stones are carved several different figures, representing animals, fruit, human, constellations and even the Milky Way.
    The archaeological site of Inga Stone is a set full of intriguing rock inscriptions, extraordinarily complex, produced in low relief widely over a rocky cliff of 46m long by 3.8 m high, rising upon a pavement of the creek blunderbuss, the city of Inga. The inscriptions, which occupy 15m long by 2.3 m high in the wall, we present esmeras with many mixed signals, making an amazing system of signs that were recorded by a past that unknown grooves broad, deep and very well polished. Of course, much conjecture about the origin of these intriguing prints, which are assigned to different purposes and craftsmen; from ancient Indian cultures to people from other continental longitudes or aliens coming from outer firmament. The truth is that to date there is no definitive outcome on this intriguing mystery of the past. Photos: Adrovando Claro
