World’s Largest Lamb Sculpture

Some guy named Bill Veall claims to have discovered the world's largest rock sculpture. It's somewhere in the Peruvian Andean mountains, and it's in the shape of a "sacred lamb". He says he found it by using satellite imaging techniques to search for ancient shapes and formations. I guess that rules out any possibility he's just seeing what he wants to see. (sarcasm)



From Sky News: "Mr Veall, who studies the relationships between astronomy and archaeological monuments, has faced a series of doubters who claim he doctored the images to create an elaborate hoax."

Big red flag indicating the skeptics may be right: Veall won't release the coordinates of the site. He says, "If I gave you the co-ordinates of the site, a million people would find it immediately... But we want to secure and preserve the site until we can get a scientific team to have a look at it."

A sacred lamb, from prehistoric Peru. . .

hmmm

Obviously a skilled and knowledgeable individual when it comes to archaeology.

Exactly, Acci! This only *proves* that it was carved by ancient peruvian explorers who circled the globe in their crystal-powered space kayaks!

This guy may want to talk to Mr Hoagland about his findings...

I don't see a sacred lamb. I see a small dog humping a larger dog.

Pornodolia?

Isn't his name a dead giveaway? Veall? Really? Also, James Bief has discovered a giant cow monument, and Fred Porque has discovered a large pig.

Veal is not lamb, Michael.

I see a goat or something, but my guts say that it's just pareidolia.

I have very verbose guts. You know, for guts.

I dont see anything, can some one post a pic with an outline of what im supposed to be seeing?

I guess if it's in Peru it would more likely be a sacred llama.

However, now thanks to CMG, all I can see is two humping dogs - damn it!

i was personally thrilled to find out someone besides myself noticed we are speaking of a discovery both questionable & meat-centred 'found' [in a manner of speaking] by a man named, ah, Veal[l].

this is even more fascinating, btw, if you click the link, listen to as much as you can tolerate of the spiel--then click the photo links. there you can also find an Antelope Head [in a manner of speaking, redux] & TWO faces of some heads or other that are VERY VERY clearly related to The Face On Mars. no joke.

You have a very dirty mind, Kristen.

I must not be very good at pareidolia; all I see is a rock. I feel like Charlie Brown at Halloween.

Of course it is, Kristen. It's a llovely lleaping llama llamb.

Posted by Craig Walker  on  Thu Dec 11, 2008  at  04:54 AM

Posted by frank  on  Thu Dec 11, 2008  at  07:49 AM
Just imagine the rabbit is a lamb, but it is really just some rock.

pareidolia is so lame

Here's a bad outline of what I saw.

Posted by Sakano  in  Ohio  on  Thu Dec 11, 2008  at  03:14 PM
Wow. It looks as though this Veall guy has been doing this sort of thing for at least thirty-four years.
Posted by Accipiter  on  Thu Dec 11, 2008  at  06:15 PM
see nothing but ugly stone

Guess paradoeila is in the mind of the observer - for example, some people look at the following image and see just a lump of dead mest, while others see hope and salvation - see for yourself

And I am going to Hell for this . . .

I have to agree... small dog humping a larger dog. Which only proves that some humor is timeless.
