    The Remarkable Discoveries 2

    sculptures

    This is how archeologist Dr Srejovic described the sensational finds in the summer of 1967: 'I had just sat down for a short rest under a tree at some distance from the team when one of the girls dashed up and asked me to come as they had found a stone with ornamentation. At first I thought it was a joke, but when she insisted I told her they ought to clean the stone better since the ornamentation was probably just natural scratches. However, she kept trying to convince me, so I finally went with her. As soon as I saw the carved stone, skilfully decorated with a lace-like design, I became as excited as the others and we all began to hug one another and jump for joy. We immediately went on lifting the floors of the excavated houses, coming upon even more interesting sculptures around the hearths.'

    sculptures

    The oldest stone monumental sculptures that represent the human head life-size and larger can be found in the Lepenski Vir museum. They are trully impressive and look modern. Who can tell they're more than 8000 years old?
    The sculptures were modelled from large boulders of yellow sandstone found in the surrounding mountains and embedded in the house foundations, usually behind the hearths.

    it is no wonder they adored fish-human God , since the town is on the Dunav river bank. 70% of their food was fish. So their lives mostly depended on the river.
