    Could the large Y in the center been used as a mold?

    I am wondering what sort of impression would be left if the rock was rolled?

    What method was used to determine the carving was done with metal tools? Was this recent? Methodology has came a long way in the last 20 years to determine authenticity of indian relics.

    Interesting rock for sure.

    ... "with a big beautiful door in it" (Lol)

    I spoke with the museum curator yesterday and will tell you about the conversation we had in a few days. I'd do it now, but I'm heading out the door to go to a friend's house to watch the NFL championship games - and starting tomorrow I will be out of town for a few days. So please stay tuned because I found something near the Mystery Rock two days ago that might interest everyone.

    notice too how the carvings on the face extend down the sides....this is not a feature on typical petroglyphs.

    Almost looks like a type of magic/occult/ angelic writing sigil, but it seems to have too many geometric features/characters. No ancient culture/ nor occult type thing I have run accross.

    Here's the "something" I found near the Mystery Rock the other day. When I picked it up I noticed it was quite heavy and thought it was a Meteorite. When I got home and did some research and discovered it is not a Meteorite but a piece of Slag. The long story short is that Slag is debris left over from foundries and is used for Highway and Railroad foundations. It has a lot of iron in it that a magnet sticks to. Apparently one of the main (noticeable) differences between Meteorites and Slag is that Slag has holes in it created by exploding bubbles, whereas meteorites don't have the obvious hole. And because there is a Highway and Railroad nearby, I'm confident it came from one of those sources.

    By the way, I have another so called "something" I came across in my research of the Mystery Rock symbols that I will share in my next post ...

    You may recall my having said earlier that the Y symbol on the Mystery Rock might be significant. So I focused all of my research on it in an attempt to find a Y symbol with rounded ends or what might be circles. I'm still in the preliminary phase of this, but notice the rounded/circle ends on the letters, especially the Y, on this Phoenician coin. There are variation coins that are similar, but this particular example is referred to a "Shekel of Tyre" and dates to about 200 BC. Examples in descent condition sell for about $1,000.

    Compare the Y on the Mystery Rock to the Y on the coin. Also notice that all/most of the letters on the coin have round/circle ends. [ Click to enlarge ]

    P.S.

    The letters on the Phoenician coins with the round/circle ends is the only artifact of any type I have been able to find that has those characteristics.

    If you didn't think I was off my rocker before, you probably will now. As it turns out, there is a Phoenician coin with an OWL on it. With that said, look at the Y on the Mystery Rock and notice its outlined in what might be the shape of an owl ...

    Bob - If you found this chunk near the tracks and you didn't find lots and lots of it, I suspect it is a coal 'clinker' from the firebox of a steam locomotive that likely ran to the nearby military base well into the 1940's.
    They told me I should hold on to my dreams.
    So I went back to sleep...

    I plan to go there soon and look along the highway and railroad tracks and see if I can find any more of the slag/clinkers. The highway is about 100 yards from the Mystery Rock and the rail line is about 200 yards away.

    Here's another visual with the letter Y from the Tyre coin inserted next to the Y on the Mystery Rock. Please note I am not suggesting the carving was done in 300 BC but that the original carver might have known something about ancient history and used its influence to create the carving.

    i think it is a doodle. your carver was not all that skilled, he made lines and dots, no recognizable forms or words...it looks like random work to me. without meaning...practice as it were.
