    I found this on an overlook and was wondering if anyone has ever seen one like this before or maybe have any information on its origin. Any information or help would be gratefully appreciated. Thanks you

    a bit more information like where it is might help give an indication as to what it represents.
    For instance, if it were in Italy, I might say it looks similar to the papal symbol (crossed keys).

    One of the lines appears to be a shepherd's crook.

    I’m from Tennessee. This is closer to the East Tennessee/Kentucky border. I’m going to try to go back this weekend if weather holds out and try to get better pics of it and area. I know there was an old homestead about a mile from here. But I don’t know family name. My uncle showed it to me a while back. That is a Shepard’s hook in center. Other then that I don’t know anything else. But it has peak my interest in its meaning.

    I believe it, therefore it is true.

    Looks like a compass rose/compass with azimuth lines, often the x part is the solstices. Instead of a shepherd's crook it may be more related to the Chi Rho symbol (P with an X over it). May or may not be treasure related, it's an old religious symbol though.

    edit: just read Carl's link, and it talks about the Chi Rho symbol.

    BTW, P with an X , or Chi Rho, is equivalent to the skull and cross bones symbol as well. The P is equivalent to head/skull.
