Fisherman nets 4,000-year-old pagan figurine

http://www.grindtv.com/outdoor/outposts/post/fisherman-nets-4000-year-old-pagan-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 don't care what it is worth. It looks creepy and likely is cursed :)

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

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

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