In the distant South American state of Peru, there are lots of interesting archeological sites that have baffled both visitors and explorers of these places. Among them, the least popular but most unsual site is Toro Muerto.
A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ Petroglyphs Of Peru
The Toro Muerto petroglyphs are located in the Uracha region, in the province of Castile (Arequipa), where, according to the latest inventory r̟e̟c̟o̟r̟d̟s, 2,584 stone carvings were found. The work carried out at the last stage contributes to the recognition of Toro Muerto as a world cultural heritage and an increase in the number of visitors to this site.
The Toro Muerto petroglyphs, located in the Uracha region, in the province of Castile (Arequipa), have the most bizarre petroglyphs, which according to many, is the ultimate evidence of A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳s visitations in the distant past.
A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ people depicted a large number of mysterious human-like creatures
According to the latest inventory r̟e̟c̟o̟r̟d̟s, 2,584 stone carvings were found in the Toro Muerto petroglyphs. A lot of carvings depict strange figures which, in fact, are not quite human. Interestingly, some of these petroglyphs bear a striking resemblance to other A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ rock paintings that were discovered on other parts of our planet.
Toro Muerto has an area of several square kilometers and its name, translated from Spanish, means “Dead Bull.” There was less freshwater in those places, so domestic animals often died of dehydration, that is why the place is called “Dead Bull.”
A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ people carved many interesting figures there on the walls
stones. They are inscribed on volcanic boulders, and there are a lot of similar stones on this large and deserted plateau. Many enthusiasts believe that these enigmatic petroglyphs are the ultimate proof of a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳s visiting Earth in the distant past.
Many of the A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ petroglyphs date back to around 10,000 BC. To date, researchers have identified about 5,000 of these mysterious drawings.
One can find many details of the life of a primitive man. Among the petroglyphs of Toro Muerto, there are very interesting depictions of shepherds and h̳u̳n̳t̳e̳r̳s̳, as well as many animals that lived in those harsh lands. A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ people also depicted sunflowers and trees without branches. There are also various geometric symbols, zigzags, squares, and diamond-shaped objects.
A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ people depicted a large number of mysterious human-like creatures. Many agree that these are very unusual creatures, and they do not look like humans. These mysterious entities depicted on the stones of Toro Muerto have many strange features. For example, antennas on the heads.
Wandjina: Rock paintings found in Australia similar to A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ petroglyphs of Peru
Even more surprising fact is that some of the Toro Muerto petroglyphs are very similar to those found in Australia. Local primitive people of this distant continent also made images of mysterious creatures with “halos” around their heads. These rock paintings are called “Wandjinas,” which have strange creatures without mouths, with huge black eyes, and pale faces. And these faces are surrounded by something strikingly similar to the helmets of astronauts.
The first person who decided that these A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ carvings depicted A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳s was French scientist Christine Dequerlor, who actually discovered them in 1970.
One of the most interesting drawings is a quadrangular vehicle on props. The stones also depict unknown creatures wearing helmets next to strange looking objects. According to modern science, Toro Muerto attributes to the Huari culture, which disappeared around the 10th century AD.

It is noteworthy that the locals refused to help Christine Deverlor in excavations and research, as they are sure that Toro Muerto is a place with bad energy.
Many researchers suggest that the people of A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ Peru and Australia are not related in any way. Then why does their art have such striking similarities?
