High on a mountainside above the above Provo Utah, rests a face that has been exposed to the rigors of the harsh Utah climate for thousands of years. It was discovered in the mid 1990's by Jack Perrine while following a trail of petroglyph type inscriptions. These unusual inscriptions led him into a steep drainage, where he began to work his way up the mountainside. He found some additional inscriptions as he scoured the area, but the highlight of his day was the discovery of the large stone head. It is approximately 6' in length, 3.5 feet in width, and about 3+ feet deep. Many of the features have been broken off by the freeze-thaw cycle of the area. But investigating down hill revealed...

...many of the fractured, carefully worked face pieces. All features of the face have been carefully tooled and shaped, The nose is a masterpiece of tightly fitted rock work, so precise that it does not allow any water to enter the joints. The face has absolutely no resemblance to any of the cultural artifacts of the historical or ancient Native American inhabitants of the area. Its obvious age predates any European time period. So it is safe to postulate that its origins are from a source unknown to our current historical record.
As Jack scoured the area, he discovered some other extremely unusual artifacts, including one crumbling brick-sized object with an embedded crystal with engraved wings.
This symbol is found in and associated with Egyptian and other ancient Far Eastern cultures. Another item was a hand formed decorative object that was made from a reddish-pink colored cement. An ongoing search of the surrounding mountainside has revealed two feline profiles, unusual partial walls, and possible cache or burial sites.
By examining the placement and orientation of the scattered finds to date, we think that the site was in use during the melting off of the last Ice age, when Lake Bonneville was still full. That would place the date in the 6,000 to 8,000 BC era. It has been well documented that there were inhabitants living around the shores of Lake Bonneville as early as 9,000 BC.
One last item of note is the proximity of this particular area, to other unexplained sites about 50 miles to the South in the Manti area. As these discoveries are still unfolding, we can only hypothesize about the possibility of links, but there is no doubt about the historical anomalies that both sites represent.
