Prehistoric Rock Carving Depict Ostrich Masked People in Egypt

Ancient mysterious rock carving found near Aswan Egypt along the river Nile depict masked people dancing along side an Ostrich, wearing ostrich masks.

The rock carvings were found in Qubbet el-Hawa, which means the ‘hill of the wind’.

These remarkable finds help shed light onto the ancient neolithic people of this region roughly 2200BC.

Qubbet el-Hawa is a site of a big dune on the western bank of the Nile, opposite Aswan. The elite Tombs date mainly from the Old Kingdom which provide an insight into the burial traditions of Upper Egyptian Nome 1 during the later Old Kingdom. The tombs include the famous tomb of Harkhuf. Others belong to Sabni or Heqaib. There are later tombs, from the Middle Kingdom and New Kingdom. Excavation work continues. The hill is also the site of a Coptic monastery and some of the tombs were reused as a Coptic church.
