Extremely Rare 9,000-Year-Old Stone Masks From The Ancient Land Of Israel - Are Considered The Most Ancient Human Portraits Worldsoldestmaslsisrael02_smallMessageToEagle.com - These extremely rare 9,000-year-old stone masks all originated in the Land of Israel and are considered among the most ancient human portraits.
 
"Originally they are all from the same region, found within only about 30 km. from each other in the Judean Hills and nearby in the Judean Desert.
 
It is the first time that the group will be shown together, in their birthplace, and also the first time that the majority of them will be on public view, as they are usually part of private collections," reports Jerusalem Post.
 
The Israel Museum has held in its collections two Neolithic stone masks so far.

“This is an amazing collection, because the masks represent the first attempt of man to fashion with his hands other physical material,” said James Snyder, director of the Israel Museum, at a preview.
 
The ancient stone faces with the large closely placed eyeholes, gaping mouths, prominent eyebrows give a strong impression of a human skull.

Debby Hershman, the Museum’s Curator of Prehistoric Cultures, added: “The faces show the moment of transition between life and afterlife.
 
 
 

It is not yet what we today would call religion but it is the first glimmer of existential reflection.”

Hershman, who is an archaeologist and anthropologist herself, did over 10 years of research on the 12 masks.

"Our interpretation is that the masks represent the skulls of the ones who passed away. They are symbols of the ancestors," Hershman further explained.

The experts assume that they are all male and that the biggest one with a strong patina and a massive forehead is symbolizing the spirit of the chief of an ancient tribe, and that it has been used in social ceremonies and in rites of healing and magic.

The archaeologists explored the masks’ geographical origins, and made use of the computerized archaeology laboratory at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem to conduct 3-D analyses that shed light on their comparative features and functions.
 
“Luckily the masks were made of stone, otherwise they [wouldn’t be] left for us,” Hershman said.
 
And even though visitors can’t wear the 9000-year-old masks for Purim, they might get inspired by their ancient spirit."
