I was doing some research for fun, after having taken several history, anthropology and art history courses, on the pyramids of Giza.

I was on Google Maps when I came across this image, geoglyph, on the ground.

At first I only noticed what seemed to be a human head, neck and shoulders. Like that of the bust of Nefertiti.

Then, I noticed two smaller geoglyphs, INSIDE and at the bottom of the larger image of another head and a frog.

Have these been found before? Idea







Which looks like this to me:



And inside that larger image of the bust, the head and frog:

Sorry, but I would say your imagination goes by with you. With this method, you can anywhere in the world identify signs and symbols on earth ... If you want this absolutely.

I was several times on the Plateau. The environment is extremely uneven, thereto get also to a certain degree moving sand structures, from the remains of human buildings from about 5000 years not to talk...

Greetings, Lutz.

The thing about them though, the small head inside of the larger image is 270 feet across.

I would agree, as it seems most of the details have eroded from wind.

Though the general shape and depth of the holes that comprise the images can not be determined from just examination of my screenshots.

But, if you'd like to see for yourself on Google Maps...

The coordinates are:

29°52'36.6"N 30°57'38.7"E

As I said, this is from my point of view complete rubbish and by this "method" one can invent many figures around... And not only there, anywhere in the world.

Greetings, Lutz.

The most comprehensive collection of resources and documents about the Giza Plateau that I know (collected and made ​​available online by the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston) is : "The Giza Archives".
