10,000 year old Astronaut, 'La Chaquira' – Ancient Aliens in Colombia?
Hey guys, today I am going to a very remote part of Colombia known as El Tablon, which means a platform or a flat board in Spanish. There is a very strange ancient carving at this place which is supposed to be one of the oldest carvings, showing an alien, an extraterrestrial figure. Here, the roads are not paved and are very narrow. This is deep country side of Colombia and the road is flanked by plenty of trees and plants.
This place is nowhere near the road, which means we had to park the truck and then walk. I do have a Colombian guide with me, who helps me with my travels. Archeology department of Colombia has put up steps, leading to this area, but this is a site no one visits because of its remote location. I had to walk for about 30 minutes before I finally saw La Chaquira.
Right away, you will get a strange feeling when you look at this figure. This is one of the weirdest carvings I have ever seen. Its eyes are too large to be human and it has a strange smile, almost a mischievous grin on its face.
What’s the origin of this statue? Archeologists have no idea, but perhaps his finger pointing to the sky might have the answer to that. Did he come from the sky, thousands of years ago? Let us go take a closer look and see if we can get any other information. Normally people do not climb up the rocks to get closer to this. Chaquira appears to have a helmet with a small protrusion on top, if this is not a transmitter or antenna, it could be a topknot. At the bottom, look at its legs, its wearing boots and both the legs are pointing in different directions. Talking about directions, Chaquira appears to be aligned facing the east, and this may have something to do with the sunrise.
And this is a brilliant location, on the other side you can see a valley, there are waterfalls, a river and there is nobody around, this is a fantastic location to carve this figure. Going back to why it is pointing up like that, you can clearly see that it is using its index finger pointing to the sky, while having a mischievous smile on its face. And this is not the only ancient figure like this. About 1700 miles away, there is a figure drawn on the Nazca desert, it is actually called El Astronauta or The Astronaut which is doing the exact same thing. Round eyes, and pointing to the sky. It is in the neighboring country of Peru, and there are several mysterious figures like this, called Nazca lines and you can only see them while you are flying from the air.
