Ancient Artwork (spirals)

Posted by
Jason Kravitz (Brussels, Belgium) on 3 August 2006 in Lifestyle & Culture.

These are spirals at the entrance to Newgrange in Ireland. These carvings (and the Newgrange site) are estimated to be roughly 500 years older than the pyramids. Newgrange itself is an astronomical masterpiece, to this day the sun still travles down the 19m passage way on Dec 21st, the winter solstice.

Speaking of old... Steve Aguzzi is another year older today - happy birthday my friend!
