Photo by Stephen Alvarez salvarezphoto | Putnam County, Georgia. Rock Eagle is one of the few Native American effigy mounds in the United States east of the Ohio River. The scale of this artwork is immense. The bird image is made from quartzite rocks, hauled to the site. It is 120 feet wingtip to wingtip—about the size of a 737 jet airliner. Shockingly little is known about the artwork itself. Few cultural remains were found during archaeological digs, but it's estimated that the mound is at least 2,000 years old. This image is part of a project for my nonprofit ancientartarchive that preserves and shares humanity's oldest stories.
