"THE FACE" in
We visited Kent's Cavern in September, 2005
to examine some things in the cave personally.
There is no question that
"the Face" in Kent's Cavern,
a name given to it long before we got there,
is a natural phenomena in its general shape,
but it appears to us
as if someone in ancient times
had carved some things on it by torchlight.
Indeed, we also photographed
the ceiling of the entrance
at Kent's Cavern in relative darkness
and the result was also an unknown face,
probably seen for the first time by us.
"Eyes" are always telltale evidence
as to whether a carving is natural
or man-made, as here.
Well, this is one
of the fun pages of LexiLine.
One need not take it too seriously.
Hey, it could be true.
Indeed, there are
quite a few figures
carved on "the Face" itself.
We leave it to those
versed in laser scanning
(who are unware of Face 2 above)
to help resolve the questions.
Kent's Cavern is
of ancient carvings.
Kents Cavern, Torquay, Torbay, Devon, England (see visit
shows a room called THE FACE.
We think "speculatively" and "in good fun" that this is Merlin's
self-portrait in stone.
What surprised us that closer
examination of "The
Face", as it is called at Kents Cavern, could also be a superimposed
Africa taken from Merlin's voyage as Aesculapius, the legendary
physician who accompanied Jason and the Argonauts.
forehead has a trisquare (two right-angled edges) on it showing the
principle of triangulation and marking the stars of Draco, Cepheus and
Cassiopeia, stars which can be seen by magnifying a photo of the face
and marking the heaviest visible dots and lines on the forehead.
Darker regions around the nose and mouth
show the triangulations made as shadows, but these have been difficult
terms of astronomy, the face and Kents Cavern in the megalithic system
both represent the hole in the Milky Way to the left of Canis Major,
regarded as the Cosmic Egg by the ancients, i.e. the point of creation
for the Milky Way and its stars, a function also served by Kents Cavern
for important megaliths in the astronomical system. This hole also has
a "foot" shape, used by the ancients on Britain and Ireland for
coronation of a King - who stepped into this foot shape as carved into
stone to become king. Perhaps the similarly-shaped Egyptian cartouche
has some of its royal origins here.
portion of the Milky Way is also surely the origin of the legends of
Cyclops and the Cyclopeans, the one-eyed race of magicians and
astronomers, who according to legend built some of the walls in ancient
Mycenae. These of course were the Argonauts. The hole at the Milky Way
here has only one bright star (rho-Puppis, also known as Turais) but
not two bright stars, hence also only ONE eye not two, and THE FACE
also looks as if it has only one eye, although closer inspection
reveals cupmarks or holes for the ocular locations Dakhla (rho-Puppis)
and Tahat (Xi-Puppis, also called Asmidiske or Aspidiske).
viz. holes on THE FACE show how Africa was triangulated, placing the
center at BOUAR in what is now the Central African Republic - which
amazingly has megaliths at that location spread over 25 kilometers of
ground. We discovered the existence of these megaliths only through THE
FACE, previously having no knowledge of them. The triangulation made
here by the ancients can be examined at the Africa pages on this
also is the use of an octopus to represent Mount Kilimanjaro, which
marked the star Canopus (Agastya), the second-brightest star in the
heavens after Sirius. The Arabs called Canopus Al Suhail al
"the Suhail (lucida, brightest star) of the South" and Ya-man-iyyah
seems similar to Kili-man-jaro. Significantly, the word Kili-maj-yaro
means "landmark" for the caravan-drivers of the Waswahili. For the
Egyptians, Canopus meant "Golden Earth" or Kahi Nub, as it
marked the horizon of visible stars in Egypt, and an ancient location
called Canopus actually existed in Egypt (see
(i.e. the star Turais) marked the Tropic of Cancer and the
triangulation of stars below Canopus marked the Tropic of Capricorn
