The Chimu State or also called the Kingdom of Chimor was an Andean civilization established in Peru around 850 AD. It was one of the cultures conquered by theInca in 1470. Its capital, Chan Chan, was the largest pre-Colombian city in South America. Located today in the region of La Libertad approximately five kilometers west of Trujillo.
Ive been doing some research lately and I cam across the "Shigir Idol" which was discovered in 1890 near Kirovgrad. According to experts this wodden statue is at least twice as old as the Pyramids of Egypt.
The Shigir Idol is overed with Mesolithic era symbols that have not yet been deciphered. At the moment it is located in Germany where further research is being done.
