Where do think this structure is located?

Every second Monday, I post a new photo of a ‘mystery’ location, and sometimes a mystery object.  I invite you to leave a comment if you think you know the location, or what the mystery object might be.

If you guess correctly, I will link back to your blog in the follow-up post, when the answer is revealed.  N.B. Comments will be released on alternate Mondays (Australian E.S.T.), so as not to spoil the fun for late-comers to this post.

Contribution and guest posts of Monday mystery photos are very welcome. You can send me the photograph by email. My addy can be found by clicking on my profile.

Many thanks to Banactee for submitting the above photograph.

The photo from Banectee depicted the ancient petroglyphs from the Fajana cemetery on the island of La Palma, Spain in the Canarian Archipelago, thought to be etched by the Indigenous people of the Canary Islands.

“Today, archaeological and ethnographic studies have led most scholars to accept the view that the pre -colonial population of the Canaries shared common origins with North African Berber tribes from the Atlas Mountains region who began to arrive in the Canaries by sea around 1000 BCE or earlier.” Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canary_Islands_in_pre-colonial_times

Previous Monday Mystery Photo – Myanmar

 

Many thanks to Donny Suryanto at Buddhistartnews for contributing the last Monday Mystery photograph, of Kyaik-hti-yo Pagoda – the Golden Hanging Rock in Myanmar.

DonnySuryanto

Kyaiktiyo Pagoda is a popular pilgrim site among Buddhists. It is the second most important pilgrim site of all Myanmar. It is located at the summit of Mount Kyaiktiyo, 1,100 meters above sea level.  Placed on the very edge of a hill as if it was defying gravity, the legends says the rock is actually supported by a hair from Buddha and that is the reason why hundreds of thousands of Burmese come every year to venerate it.

Previous Monday Mystery Photo

Thanks to Peggy for sharing your unusual photograph last week. You can read more on Peggy’s post here, but it was of course, as Drake suggested:

Mati Karmin’s bronze pig sculpture in Tartu (Estonia)

The bronze sculpture of a pig on a barrel features a poem by Hirv, engraved on the one side and the opposite side, (shown here), has the numbered lists of the butcher ‘cuts’ for pork. The message is fairly obvious.

“Transcendence”, is a fish flying through a building — a sculpture by Keith Jellum

The fishy street art installation can be found in the South Park Building, found, ironically, at SW Salmon St, in downtown Portland.

Previous Monday Mystery Photograph – Baku, Azerbaijan

The mystery photo, last time, came from Anna Powaska. It looked uncannily like London to many, but it was in fact Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan. Fun fact about Azerbaijan, which has been likened to Dubai for its highly distinctive architecture. Kutabi – a type of savoury filled pancake are practically Azerbaijan’s national dish. They’re stuffed with pumpkin, veggies, meat or just a sprinkling of herbs, then flipped and toasted on a griddle.

Those who were guessed the location correctly were:

Leggy Peggy

Drake

Restless Jo

Well done! And good luck for this week.

Thank you Anna for sharing your photograph.
