Is it possible to suggest that this 3,000 -year-old stone artefact is a replica of an ancient single-seat rocket ship?
It was discovered in Turkey in 1973 in a town called Tushpa, modern-day Toprakkale. Once upon a time Tushpa was the capital of the Kingdom Urartu. The lost Kingdom of Urartu is shrouded in mystery because very little is known about this ancient place and the origins of its people. The kingdom’s beginnings are lost in the mists of pre-history, but before it was destroyed, Urartu was situated in Eastern Turkey, Iran and the modern Armenian Republic. The earliest documentary mention of the land of Urartu can be found in Assyrian sources.
Based on what we know, the people of Urartu were famous metalworkers, spoke a language that was related to Hurrian (a language that has no other known connections), and they adapted the Assyrian cuneiform script for their own purposes.
Amazing stone artefact made of soft yellowish-brown stone is estimated to be around 3,000 years old, although some researchers speculate that the object could be much older than what researchers now believe. It is stored in the Istanbul Archaeology Museum in Turkey and has never really been on public display.
According to Zecharia Sitchin’s book The Earth Chronicles Expeditions: “The object itself is a sculpted scale model of what, to modern eyes, looks like a cone-nosed space vehicle, 23 cm long, 9.5 cm high, and 8cm wide (about 5.7, 3.8, and 3.5 inches respectively). It is powered by a cluster of four exhaust engines in the back surrounding a larger exhaust engine. And in its center, the rocket ship has room for a sole pilot—a pilot [unfortunately headless] who is actually shown and included in the sculpture…”
This fascinating statue depicting a space-suited alien-like man on the rocket is one of the most challenging pieces of evidence in the ancient astronaut theory. Many believe it is the ultimate physical proof that otherworldly beings came to Earth in the distant past.
In his book, Zekaria Sitchin gives description of ‘alien pilot’:
“He sits with his legs bent up toward his chest. He wears a ribbed pressure suit; it is a one-piece suit that completely hugs the body. Down the legs and at the feet, it becomes boot-like. It extends and fully covers the folded arms, becoming glove-like where the hands are. The ribbed and presumably flexible suit encloses the whole torso—up to the pilot’s neck…”
What if this space capsule-like looking object is a representation of Khaldi, the supreme sky god, one of the three main deities of the Urartu people. His original character as a god of vegetation and fertility was developed by giving him a new role as the national god of Urartu.
Ancient Kingdom Urartu with its megalithic constructions is filled with artefacts, which have not been excavated because of different reasons. This region of eastern Anatolia in Turkey is one of the greatest mysteries to archeology.
