Fisherman nets 4,000-year-old pagan figurine

http://www.grindtv.com/outdoor/outpo...agan-figurine/

Nikolay Tarasov pulls Bronze Age artifact, carved in bone and said to be worth more than its weight in gold, from Siberian river near the community of Tisul.

Yahoo - The museum director added that Tarasov did not ask for any reward, even though the artifact “is probably worth more than if it was made of gold.”

Tarasov, a Siberian driver who fishes on the side, offered a simple explanation.

“People should see it, and learn the history of their region. It was quite clearly precious for the museums of any country.”

I think you have one or more words missing in that post

Also, FYI, Drakkith told me it looks just like you.

Pretty sure the plot of Exorcist III...well, one of the exorcist sequels/prequels, anyway - began with something like this.
