Curious looking things.
When the plaster first originally fell off, it was covered up again for 8 years. I’m not sure as to why the government/archaeologist covered it up but I watched countless documentaries and read different theories world wide on these images; No definite conclusion on this matter. People can’t seem to agree on what this is.

Curios looking things, aren’t they? There are so many blogs, websites and forums that it is quite overwhelming. I will share with you a few more curious anomalies/images around the world below. -Sola

The Kebra Nagast or The Glory of the Kings, is a 14th-century account written in Ge’ez of the origins of the Solomonic line of the Emperors of Ethiopia. The text, in its existing form, is at least 700 years old and is considered by many Ethiopian Christians and Rastafari to be an inspired and a reliable work.
Even The ancient book of Kebra Nagast speaks of an old Ethiopian legend of King Solomon flying from Israel to meet The Queen of Sheba. – David Childress

Leonardo was convinced that man could achieve his objective of flight only by imitating the natural movements of birds and other winged animals.
Could Leonardo da Vinci fly? In our video you can find the answer to this question according to Edoardo Zanon, one of the curators of the Leonardo3 exhibition in Milan.

Leonardo da Vinci, Helical Airscrew, c.1487,
Manuscript B, Institut de France, Paris.
The airscrew may be regarded as the ancestor of the modern helicopter. The plan, long pursued by Leonardo, for a flying machine that used only human muscular energy failed because he did not manage to find a system of propulsion that corresponded to the supporting strength of the wings.
The first aviator Abbas Ibn Firnas?
Also known as Abbas Abu al-Qasim ibn Firnas ibn Wirdas al-Takurini, was an Andalusian polymath: an inventor, physician, engineer, Andalusian musician, and Arabic-language poet. Often said to be of Berber descent, he was born in Izn-Rand Onda, Al-Andalus (today’s Ronda, Spain), lived in the Umayyad Emirate of Córdoba, and is reputed to have attempted flight.
The crater Ibn Firnas on the Moon is named in his honor, as well as the Ibn Firnas Airport in Baghdad and one of the bridges over the Guadalquivir river in Cordoba.
Ibn Firnas is a lunar impact crater on the far side of the Moon, in honour of Abbas Ibn Firnas, a polymath from Andalucia who, in the 7th century, devised a chain of rings that could be used to simulate the motions of the planets and stars.
Abbas Ibn Firnas Statue Baghdad air port
Among other very curious experiments which he made, one is his trying to fly. He covered himself with feathers for the purpose, attached a couple of wings to his body, and, getting on an eminence, flung himself down into the air, when according to the testimony of several trustworthy writers who witnessed the performance, he flew a considerable distance, as if he had been a bird, but, in alighting again on the place whence he had started, his back was very much hurt, for not knowing that birds when they alight come down upon their tails, he forgot to provide himself with one.
The Winged Victory of Samothrace, also called the Nike of Samothrace, is a 2nd-century BC marble sculpture of the Greek goddess Nike.
I find this photo above quite curious as to why the original artist would put straps on the back of the wings of this statue?

NASA scientist Ram Prasad Gandhiraman, who started an online petition against an ISC lecture on ancient aviation, on why we must fight pseudo-science.
Contribution of ancient civilizations, be it Indian or Mesopotamian, are highly valued by international experts in the field. The contributions made by ancient Indians in astronomy, mathematics, art and architecture cannot be refuted.

Claims made by Capt Bodas that ancient aeroplanes could move from planet to planet are inline with the parliamentarians’ preposterous comments on eulogising the past and I see a commonality between the two. I will only be happy to be proven wrong. – NASA scientist Ram Prasad Gandhiraman.

Were the Wright brothers really first? Not in Brazil – CNET
On December 17th, 1903, Orville and Wilbur Wright flew their Wright Flyer for the first time. This marked man’s first journey through the skies… Right?
The first powered flight by the Wright Brothers took off on December 17, 1903, in North Carolina. The flight lasted 12 seconds and covered 120 feet.
The Wright Brothers were NOT the first to fly a plane – a German pilot beat them to it two years earlier in a flying car, claims leading aviation journal.

Human’s capability of flight comes down to four main forces:
lift, gravity, thrust and drag. But how do these forces work together (or against each other) to make human flight possible?
The Saqqara Bird is a bird-shaped artifact made of sycamore wood, discovered during the 1898 excavation of the Pa-di-Imen tomb in Saqqara, Egypt. It has been dated to approximately 200 BCE, and is now housed in the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities in Cairo.
The Saqqara Bird has a wingspan of 180 mm (7.1 in) and weighs 39.12 g (1.380 oz).Its function is not understood because of a lack of period documentation.

This is just a few examples on this peculiar subject. Theories run from an ancient catastrophe that made man kind start all over again and others that are so far out, it’s hard for the average person to wrap their heads around. There were too many websites to list but you can search further on your own. Enjoy exploring!
