What’s what with the cave?
The Chauvet cave was painted approximately 30,000 years ago and the dreams were buried and sealed for 20,000 years by a land slide.
The site and its contents were discovered in 1994 and rocked the world! Now, images hidden within the paintings have been found and reveal specific designs and intentional masking which tells a story that is massively important from an artistic and historical point of view.
What are the images telling us? How do they offer a connection to the building of ancient Egypt? images appear to link from the cave to Seti the 1st’s tomb! Is there evidence that reveals a connection to Ra, the ‘creative power’? Could this be the source of what was to become the ancient Egyptian culture?
Does any of it point towards the book “Chariots of the Gods”?
A new Book is filled with the images that have been found and describes how the paintings of animals lead you across Africa and on towards Tehran! With connections to other ancient sites and art work, the Book is a MUST READ! for all those with an interest in our past. We have set the dreams free!
How will this affect us and where could it take us?
Ra was the Sun God of ancient Egypt.
It was believed that Ra was swallowed every night by the sky goddess Nut, and was reborn every morning. During the night, he travelled through the underworld and appeared as a man with the head of a ram.
The image below is part of a set of lions that are all looking the same way. At this point they are not so important, it is what is hidden in the lions on the far right hand side.
There is half a face drawn into them! Once mirrored (on the direct vertical), the face reveals itself as you will see… and even still, it seems to have a very strong resemblance to something Leonardo da Vinci created in one of his works. comparing the two is stunning.
So what has this face got to do with Ra?
Legend says that Ra lost and eye, but nobody knows which one. In the original we see only the left eye. The right eye has not been painted. Perhaps this is a clue.
Another clue could be the way the typical “eye of Ra” image has also been created in the cave and is also the left eye as you can see here;
It’s clear to see how an easy comparison can be made. Strangely, this ‘eye’ in the cave is also reproduced, or is a copy of, an area of terrain on the surface of earth. What is even stranger is how I was able to locate this place on the surface. It would seem that one image of a lion in the cave is actually a map of North Africa and shows the Nile region.
Exactly what were these ancient artists trying to show? It seems to be clear that it was not just animales they were painting.
In Herzog’s documentary, one of the scientists who was giving us a guided tour of the art and comments that there is only one representation of a human form in the entire cave. I’m sure this is wrong as I believe I have found quite a lot more.
