Ural Elk is Most Ancient Geoglyph on Earth

 A huge image of an elk found near Chelyabinsk is the most ancient image of the kind on the planet, researchers assume. 

      This South Ural geoglyph (a large-scale drawing on the ground) is the only drawing of the kind in this country, and recent excavations have shown that it was created in a way not yet established about 5 to 8 thousand years back.

      The elk was found in 2011 in Satkin District of the Chelyabinsk Region by the regional specialist Alexander Shestakov who was engaged in the accomplishment of the national park Zyuratkul.

      The gigantic picture of an elk is outlined on the slope of Zyuratkul Ridge at the height of 860 meters. The regional specialist has long been wondering wherefrom this land has these boulders untypical for the soil. The answer was found, when Alexander Shestakov looked at the satellite photographs and discerned outlines of an elk.

      The elk contour is two kilometers long and has 275 meters in diameter. Researchers state that it is a most ancient monument created by man.
