Vincenzo Tupputi collection of thousands of stone anthropomorphs from the coast of Levante di Barletta, Italy
A small part of the Vincenzo Tupputi collection of thousands of stone anthropomorphs from the coast of Levante di Barletta, Italy (please click photos to expand)
Vincenzo Tupputi writes (trans. from Italian) "Attached are photos of some of my collection collected in 22 years, flint carving, keep in mind that my collection consists of thousands of stones with the same characteristics, 98% are anthropomorphs. This is remains a private collection because as you know, what do you think of the scientific world? All material is from near the marina since it lies on the shoreline of the coast of Levante di Barletta (bt) Italy. Just to put it aware that Paleolithic and Neolithic artifacts are an indisputable reality. Kind regards"
Tupputi note: "To give you an idea of the territorial situation enter the magazine 'Geologists and Territory' released in 2007 under my boost by geologist Giovanni Alfredo that shows at a glance the fruit of my research, including lithic artifacts that can be found in the testimony of submerged sites."
Locating similar figures at submerged sites suggests a Pleistocene age for some of this art. The lower sea levels exposing the now submerged locations occurred because so much water was tied up in the glaciation events in the world's northern latitudes.
Grazie Vincenzo Tupputi.
