I suppose it's a "policeman with a gun" the same way the Tenochtitlan sculptures of Tlaloc are "really" four-wheel-drive vehicles, and the famous Mayan tomb lid was "really" an ancient astronaut being launched on a spacecraft...until they decoded the glyphs which said "Chac descends into the underworld."

It's a gun because someone wants to believe it's a gun. It looks like an atlatl or perhaps a stone axe to me.

Now you're just reaching. I read this little quote on that site "How come such an astonishing discovery is not well known today?", and I just laughed and laughed and laughed.

The stalk of the "gun" is not in the drawing, it is rather the shape made by the persons arm and body, rather than an object. Removing that from the pic of the "gun" drastically reduces the simularity between the drawing and a gun. If that part of the drawing were of an object, why is there a gap between the finger and they body? There is nothing there.

What it is a drawing of, I could not say.

A simpler explantion than positing the discovery of gunpowder and ballistics thousands of years before any other evidence for their use would be either some kind of hand weapon, ceremonial object or even the first thing that came to my mind (dirty and anthropoligically-oriented as it is) which is something similar to the Yanomami practice of tying the penis to a waist string, perhaps incorporating some kind of adornment. We have evidence for all those practices and reason to suspect they could have existed pre-historically. Whereas we have none to suspect cave-musketeers.

I am man. See my club.

The other adornments may mean something also, seeing as the artist has taken the time to represent them. Tribe identity, status? Your guess is as good as mine. Their meanings are lost in time. But wielding a club and pointing to one's phallus are easily interpreted.

I own this place. Stay away or I'll kick your arse.
