2000 Year Old Magnetized Giant Sculptures on the Pacific Coast of Guatemala Studied
Artisans on the Pacific Coast of what is now Guatemala, at the site of Monte Alto, 2000 years ago, crafted huge human sculptures, many with potbellies, with magnetized foreheads, cheeks and navels. Lightning strikes magnetized sections of boulders that were crafted into the sculptures. The magnetized rocks were seen as the presence of ancestors.
