There are many questions which persist regarding this ancient site. Who built these extraordinary buildings? Why did they build them? And of course, when was this unimaginably enormous task undertaken? Interestingly, there exists an enigmatic statue, which it seems, although predictably little shared by academia, actually pre-dates this astonishing time within earth’s history. Quoted as, "possibly one of the rarest finds of its kind," according to Dr. Clarence Epstein, Senior Director of Urban and Cultural Affairs at Concordia university, where this remarkable item is housed... Not only can no one date the object, but there also exists a language etched into its form, which is yet to be deciphered. As Dr Epstein acknowledges, no expert, among the countless he has personally consulted over the past decade, can identify the sculpture's age, artistic tradition, or indeed recognise and decipher the ancient language, found etched into it base. Dr Epstein believes the statue is of pre-dynastic age, it was originally taken from Alexandria by the Diniacopoulos family. It was then shipped with 20 crates antiquities from Egypt and the Middle East to Canada, where it still resides. However, its whereabouts prior to this shipment are unknown. Although, promisingly, there is no reason to doubt its authenticity, going on its actual known history. The statue is of two nude subjects Standing 67cm high, one male, and the other presumed female, this figure is also noted as possibly holding a child, they are depicted in a sitting position, with noticeable, elongated skulls. Additionally, they also both appear to have elongated limbs, with one resting a hand on the arm of the other. Now known as “The Starving of Saqqara,” this due to the figures emaciated frames, just what could this statue represent, or indeed be trying to tell us? How old could it possibly be? And most interesting of all, what could the enigmatic writing upon its base actually mean? As more research is undertaken, it is only a matter of time before we know its true identity, once and for all. http://www.concordia.ca/cunews/main/s... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sta...
