TEMPLE OF THE UNIVERSE IN WESTERN SIBERIA
In the article published in the Nauka v Sibiri newspaper devoted to a recent discovery of a rock temple made by the Novosibirsk scientists in the mountains of the Northern Khakasia, V.

Inside the oval one can distinguish details, which were not described by the ancient astronomer (or the data were lost) - some drawings, including the image of a scorpion with an upturned tail, the picture being in a rather good state as compared with other pictures.
