Ancient figurine whose tail raises many questions found in Panama
A mysterious figure was discovered in Panama in 1940. Among all finds, this is the figure that caused a great public outcry.
If you look closely at its tail, you will understand why there was so much interest in it. This figure is 2500-3000 years old. That is the age that is attributed to it. How not to try to make analogies and comparisons here, but the tail will put you on the spot.
The figurine itself is made of gold, and the seat (if you can call it that) is made of erald. The creation of this figurine is attributed to the Kokle culture. According to the official version, it is either a dragon or a jaguar.
In the museum, this figurine is signed as a pendant because it has a hole at the bottom for attachment.
The devices on the sides of the tail are described as fixed wheels with a plate between them that can be moved. How realistic was it to make such small parts a few thousand years ago?
The basic shape is made in the likeness of an animal, but the tail suggests its technogenic purpose. It could have been a device for drilling the earth or for flying or swimming, as one researcher claims on her website.
Whatever it turned out to be, its existence makes one wonder about past civilizations and their possible technologies…
