Siberia is huge, it stretches from the eastern slopes of the Ural Mountains to the Pacific and Arctic Oceans. Its population density is about three people per square kilometer, it is one of the most sparsely populated places on earth. Nevertheless, it seemed to be a treasure trove for archaeologists. Cool, dry air and permafrost create unique conditions for the preservation of the remains of the deep past. Despite the fact that it seems inhospitable, Siberia was the cradle of mankind.

ago, the idol is twice as old as the great Egyptian pyramids, and 6,000 years older than Stonehenge. The figure is 2.8 meters high and it has been carved out of the trunk of a 157-year-old larch, which was cut down with stone tools. The marsh where it was found helped to preserve the idol well. The face of the statue, and the patterns through the body of the idol were also well preserved. Some believe that the small furrows and lines contain encrypted information.

How you dress, in which restaurant you eat, in which hotel you live, what brand of car you use, even the number of the vehicle is important - a certain combination of numbers and letters emphasize the importance of a citizen.
