Unknown High-Tech Device,
Representation of a Spiral Galaxy
or Something Else?
It may just be a
coincidence of course, but the 'Disco Colgante' makes us easily
think this is a graphic representation of
the Milky Way, or perhaps some
other spiral galaxy.
Some of the world's oldest cave paintings have revealed ancient people had relatively advanced knowledge of astronomy.
The artworks, at sites
across Europe, are not simply depictions of wild animals, as was
previously thought. Instead, the animal symbols represent star
constellations in the night sky, and are used to represent dates and

unearthed many fascinating Moche artifacts but nothing that reminds
us of this peculiar disc.
It's a beautiful ancient artifact,
but its purpose is still a riddle.
The purpose of 'Disco Colgante' remains unknown, but it's not the first time we come across puzzling artifacts that resemble parts of some high-tech devices.
