The myths of Australian aborigines

10 Jun

aboriginesA long time ago, in the distant past dreams, big red egg flew out of heaven. It wanted to calm down, but it did not work, and from the ground bounce the egg split. From it emerged white-skinned heroes and their children. The heroes soon died, whether from old age, or because they could not breathe the local air.

But the children were young, they were able to adapt well to the new environment and therefore survived. To perpetuate the memory of their parents, the children of heroes began carving and paint on the walls of caves of their image. The remains of a big red eggs were destroyed, and eventually rusted so that mingled with the earth, which is in central Australia because of this still red. And the children of heroes multiplied and populated the entire Australian continent, but their skin was black because of the hot climate. And only their rock paintings, still recall how their ancestors looked like, who arrived from the heavens, and how they dressed.

The tribes of the Blue Mountains west of Sydney also depict strange, unusually dressed figure alien`s past. One of them is a totem-like fish object, which once came the inhabitants of heaven.They believe that the ancient heroes visited Australia, not by chance, but because they took pity on Aboriginal ancestors, who could not produce their own food. The Heroes brought the culture of the people: the ability to hunt and to make fire, and use the boomerang dart thrower.

Tradition of rock paintings

As in many other parts of the globe, Australian Aboriginal rock paintings depict the world around them, such as animals and hunting scenes. But the Australian rock art can also be seen and strange humanoid figures, like the astronauts, as well as objects that resemble spacecrafts or UFOs.

Many of these paintings thousands of years.Researchers cave paintings of primitive tribes and characteristic naturalism expressed the motto I paint only what I see. This is confirmed by the fact that pictures of animals are anatomically correct, and imprinted poses reflect known in our day habits. But in this case the ancient Australians simply could not invent anything else that they drew.

Paintings Vandzhina

A good example is the tradition of aboriginal rock paintings in Western Australia known as Vandzhina. This word refers to itself distinctive style of painting, and those awesome shapes that can be seen on it. A few decades ago, this tradition has become so popular that Vandzhina figures began to appear in the Australian city of graffiti and borrowed in a variety of elements of modern design.

Things have gone so far as to ask the Aborigines had legal prohibition of such pictures for everyone who is not related to the tribal religious ceremonies.As in the painting such that captivates everyone? Figures Vandzhina human like, but catches the eye of their otherwise.

More interested in their robes and headgear, in which the description and asks the word suit and hat, and this despite the fact that for the life of Australian aborigines before the arrival of Europeans, the concept of almost any garment is completely foreign.Myths and legends surrounding these figures emphasize that the image on their fair-skinned deity brought the knowledge of the natives. According to some versions of the myth, in the distant past these gods have come down from heaven, and on the other, they sailed to the other side of the Indian Ocean on a huge ship that is sometimes attributed distant travel Phoenician mariners around 3000 years ago.

Some scholars point out that the figures in the style of clothing can be seen Vandzhina parallel cultures of the Middle East. Evidence of this is in the racial traits Aborigines and even in the presence of Egyptian words in Australian aboriginal languages. However, this hypothesis does not explain all the strangeness of painting Vandzhina and many Australian myths.

Folklore of the giants

According to some myths, the celestial newcomers Australia were all either huge or among them giants. In connection with this recall is usually part of the great discoveries of human skeletons in Africa and Asia. But in Australia, there is evidence of the existence of giant humanoids. Thus, for example, traces of the huge human foot.

One of these tracks, found near the town of Cowra in New South Wales, has a size of about one meter in length, and half-meter traces have been found in many places. There are also primitive stone tools weighing from 4 to 12 kilograms.It is clear that the common man to handle the stone cutter, or cut down this weight would be impossible. According to the estimates made on the basis of these facts, the Australian giant weighed not less than 400-500 kg, and growth were between 4 and 6 meters and above.

Stonehenge in Bathurst

Since ancient giants connect and Australian megaliths, in particular the famous Stonehenge at Bathurst in New South Wales. That there were found, some of the giant stone tools. A large area of several square kilometers covered with boulders arranged in a straight line, stone circles, standing stones – menhirs – and even a carved stone human head. Researchers agree that one of the main features of this structure was to carry out complex astronomical observations.

Most elements of the megalithic could easily be built by human hands. But there are several structures that could not be established at the level of ancient technologies. For example, circular stone height of 4.5 meters and a diameter of about 3 meters, on a base of carved granite blocks. Some huge boulders form the precise geometric shapes, for example, an equilateral triangle with sides 55 meters.Even to draw a triangle of this size, not to mention the movement of boulders at the right point, need remarkable mathematical and building capacity.

Finally, this megalith noticeable cultural parallels habitat lost civilization of South America and the Pacific Islands. It should also be noted that, according to UFO, UFO activity in the areas of this and other megaliths is much higher than in other parts of Australia.

Rock structures in Queensland

Another attraction is located on a large plateau near the town of Toowoomba in Queensland. Now it is covered with forest, but in ancient times the plateau was naked. If you look at it from a plane, there is a clear association with the runway.

Stone pyramid in Dzhirravin

Moreover, in the state of Queensland cairns scattered height of about 120 meters and with a side of the square base of about the same length (the most famous – in the national park Dzhirravin).They form a regular grid covering an area of hundreds of square kilometers. All this has hardly been studied, as these rock formations are considered to be natural.

Star and lunar tables and maps

Near the city of Gosford, New South Wales can observe astronomical tables and maps, carved on the flat surface of the rock, often on hilltops, where the sky is clearly seen. These tables don`t only represent phases of the moon, but some say the movement of stars and planets. In the same area it was found a huge stone slab with a recess in the form of a saucer.When the recess is filled with water, it forms a mirror, reflects well the night sky.

 Around the boards were made earthen mound with a height of which the ancient astronomers could comfortably watch the movement of the heavenly bodies in their reflection. Similar maps and observatories known in the Blue Mountains, but the culture that left them still remain mysterious.

More questions than answers

Were the gods or heroes of Australian Aborigines and other ancient peoples of aliens from other worlds? Why are the stars so attracted them so much effort and time spent on the device capture the imagination of megalithic observatory? While numerous volumes of studies on this issue do not give a clear answer. After all, we have made only the first steps in space exploration.

 It may be that only when we begin to better understand the distant star systems, we truly understand the history of our own planet.
