Official science considers these figures Japanese. Apparently on the basis that they have been found in Japan. However, the issue is not as simple as it might seem. Now, some researchers think that the figures are not of Japanese origin, and represent them … aliens. We are talking about the famous figurines mastiff.
MYSTERY OF CULTURE Jomon
Dogu are among the most ancient clay sculptures in the history of mankind. The oldest of which date back to X-IV millennium BC. They date back to the Jomon period in Japan, which began in the Neolithic period and was completed in the I millennium BC
In this interesting fact: making clay figures (not just mastiff) was common in ancient history, but then, this tradition clay art suddenly and inexplicably broke off in the gap between the IV-V centuries. BC almost everywhere, lasted nearly two and a half thousand years. And figures mastiff is no exception, and the confirmation of this strange fact. But what caused the end of the "glinovayaniya" — a mystery that can not be explained by mainstream science. However, it also can not explain themselves Dogu figures — what is it, what they were, who portrayed and who created them.
Currently found about 15,000 Dogu figurines. Earlier are flat, but they are bulky in the III millennium BC. What made them non-Japanese modern type — is understandable. Japanese are lacking in the "legacy". During this time period in the current Japanese islands existed Ainu culture as well as the mysterious, much later called the rope-on-ceramic ornaments — Jomon. People created the Jomon culture mastiff, were Japanese and were not Ainu. Until either no significant correlation of their culture with the culture of the rest of the Asian continent. Found skeletons and bones of "dzemontsev" indicate that they belong to the Mongoloid, and generally their origin — is still a mystery Under a "dzemontsam" and made of dark clay Dogu, unique in the Neolithic culture.
People or …?
Dogu amazing variety of forms. They have a very distorted body proportions, the majority — an unusual person and a wonderful head, for example, triangular or heart-shaped. The entire surface is indented figures zigzags, circles, triangles, and other "geometry".
Among mastiff found images of animals, but, in general, still statues depict people, or at least humanoids. True, what floor? Some scientists, especially representatives of official science, believes that this female figures with marked "Ladies" features: wide hips, breasts, and pregnancy. Some of the mastiff even "show" delivery.
On this basis, it is assumed that the mastiff, first clay "illustration" matriarchal era, when the fairer sex played a first-class role in society, and when the woman contacted the most important moments of life: birth, life and fertility. Secondly, this ritual accessories.
Saying that it was for the ritual — the scientists can not answer, but put forward hypotheses abound. One of the most interesting is this: figurine used as a … healing devices. That is, they depicted people suffering from any ailments. In such figures priests, healers, or perhaps, the shamans of disease transmission of real patients, and then broke figurines, saving patients from suffering.
Well, in favor of this version may be the fact that many of the mastiff came to us severely damaged, but consciously or just say the destructive effect of the time — clearly impossible to say. And, besides, there is no "lekarskoy" version can not explain the absence of characteristic and mysterious right hand in a huge number of figures.
Another hypothesis is that the mastiff — is specific charms by which contact is made with natural elements or gods. And those other "dzemontsy" tried to appease, to "persuade" using somehow clay figurines. And there is a version that the mastiff — is the image space aliens, paleoastronavtov if you want. And this version — good reason to be heard.
The fact that part of the mastiff all kind like a man in a spacesuit. If such mastiff look closely, you can see that the head is a strange shape — it is not just the head, and a helmet with a circular window is too large to be human eyes. And sometimes a window like this can only be one and the whole face, or it is located behind, or even windows are available. The gap on the "lens" in the clay helmets — is, in fact, the sun visor or dashboard which is also modern helmets.
Found that almost all the mastiff near the mouth and cheeks are present and three round projection — is unclear for what you want in the image of the earthly man, and a very clear when it comes to suits — such projections could play the role of "slots" for cable connections intercoms or breathing tubes. Sometimes Dogu figurine is like the skeleton that has no hands and feet. It is possible that this image of empty suit.
Special issue — women's "breast" on some figurines. For supporters of the "alien" version is not the chest, and buttons spacesuit. In general, they say, for the female figure mastiff — still scared out of proportion. It is time. Second, there are clay figures, dating from the same time, but it is completely "human." Finally, elements of the images on Dogu repeated for almost 6000 years. Much has changed that (people, culture, dress, customs, climate and so on.) Not once, but because the immutability of parts mysterious statues shows that they were not depicting people, and something else.
Interesting fact: NASA specialists twice, in 1964 and in 1990, conducted research mastiff for compliance costume details figurines with these spacesuits. And it turned out that the details and images, "decoration" on Dogu strikingly coincide with the details of real space suits, and it is even possible to determine their function! So most researchers tend to think that the mastiff — is some substance in spacesuits.
Suit to order?
Artful and sophisticated pattern on most statues spawned version of the "national costume." Say, no it's not the suit, and the national costume. Or a tattoo or embroidery depicting … snake. According to mythology, the Ainu, the snake was "lord of the world" and characteristically solar cults. Snake, coiled, symbolized the solar disk, and the snake crawling zigzag — lightning. But between the Ainu and "dzemontsami" no links and parallels. A triangular head and missing limbs can not be the "element" of the suit.
If it comes to that, the details of the national costume could be borrowed from "Aliens" and not vice versa, because the national costume came later.
If we assume mastiff "documentary" images paleoastronavtov, the question arises: are there and in the legends and myths of hints or indications that in ancient times the visits of representatives of extraterrestrial civilizations and their contact with the local population?
Imagine there. Themselves "dzemontsy" left no written evidence, and here at their "heirs" — the Japanese — there are a lot of myths about flying in the sky and the "sons of heaven." There are also images of the cosmic "theme." For example, figure in the tomb of Chin San, dated 2000 BC, depicting the king, who raised his hand in a welcoming gesture to the family flying discs. There are the Japanese and the legend of the Fire Dragon, arrives from the heavens, in which sounds are clear echoes of the memories of the ancient starship astronauts.
And yet there is in Japanese mythology tale about the inhabitants of the deep sea, called kappa. These kappa have fins and flippers and has the important knowledge that is transmitted to humans. Surprisingly, this myth may have found a real archaeological confirmation. Off the coast of Japan, has recently been found underwater ruins of some ancient buildings. Then, perhaps, Dogu depict people in the submarine, not space suits?
However, there is yet another amazing coincidence. Figures from Japan called mastiff, and in Africa, in the land of Mali, home to the Dogon tribe, who, too, there are very detailed stories about the visits of space aliens, called Nommo. Dogu and catch up — not one they have root? And how to explain the fact that in Japan there is an ancient thermal source Dogon name …?
