How Was This 7,000-Year-Old Mysterious Artifact Carved from Granite Without Metal Tools?

A strange bird-like statuette from around 5,000 BC has puzzled Greek archaeologists, who can’t explain what it depicts or what its origin is. The “7,000-year-old enigma,” as they have labeled it, is now on display at the National Archaeological Museum of Athens, where it can be seen until the 26th of March.

    Probably in a similar way to how the Pyramids were fashioned during the stone age.

    What you do is abrade away excess material with harder minerals of which there are 3 or 4, that spring to mind, capable of doing the job.

    Speaking of cutting stones into regular shapes have you seen the evidence for the Giza circular saw?
