    Vases with possible axe swinging Giants on them.





    PS: What Zeus holds there is what the Indians call Vajra.
    For reference:




    By the way also Marduk fighting Tiamat used the same weapon as the Indian gods


    Here Vajrasattva holds a closed Vajra in her hand (from Nepal).

    Holy moly uzn, where is the above photo from? And when? What's the "official" explanation for that?

    That's one big letter-opener! Interesting.

    Although it doesn't necessarily mean Giant, there's all sorts of weirdness in this world [artworks, statues] that might one day be similarly misinterpreted if dug up.

    What do you mean that's you in that photo? With the knife? If so, tell the story, please.

    It must be very a light weight knife to be lifted and held so easily !
    also there are no signs on the surrounding sea floor of disturbance if it was "excavated" from there !

    Things underwater weight a third of what they weight over water.

    No ... the ratio of an object's weight in air, versus in water, on the earth's surface near sea level, varies dramatically with the density of the object.

    Gold has a density 19 times water, so displaces only 1/19-th of its weight when in water, so weighs (presses downward) almost the same whether in air or water.

    Balsa wood has a density about 1/7-th that of water, so displaces seven times its weight when in water, and floats (presses upward) with the ability to support six times its weight above water.

    Portland cement, with a density of about 1.5 times water, will behave as you describe. If you have 3 pounds of it in the air, it will displace about 2 pounds of water when submersed, leaving it to still weigh (press down) with a weight of 1 pound, which is one-third of its 3 pound weight in air.

    Now that I give that some thought, air, also being a fluid (mechanically) like water, must also render a similar effect. Since people can vary in density from person to person, it's not quite a consistent scale for all people, and the term "heavy boned" might actually have some truth to it literally, though I imagine the effect is nearly imperceptible in air as opposed to water. -- anyway, just some rambling nerd thought ... ...

    The shape of the knife looks modern. Notice the knob on the handle end looks like the way they make steel knives with the steel bar all the way through the handle for additional strength. It looks like that kind of design, but carved into a thin sheet of rock.

    And I don't know what kind of rock that is, but if it's some kind of gray slate, that stuff is so brittle you might be able to break than thin piece in half just by waving it around in the air, if you were strong enough to wield it.

    I don't know of any ancient knives that following that type of design. There are giant Minoan axes but even those have analogs in regular-sized Minoan axes, and even the giants who could have wielded the largest Minoan axes would still have been smaller than anyone wielding that knife to proper scale.

    Why not have giant humans? Even to this day we have basketball players 7ft- 7"6> Just my thinking, the atmosphere was different, especially when we had dinosaurs roaming the earth! I know humans came a lot latter> at least I believe! There are so many hoaxes out there! CGI etc! That might be scary if they were still with us! When I was in college at University of Kentucky I had a class with 2 basketball players, they were both about 7'1 or 2. Friends a little bit I am 5'11, They stood on the bottom step, me on top and we were Eye level! So it is possible we are growing again! Well I am 3'" taller than my dad and 5" taller than my grand dad! Better health care MAYBE! Not better nutrition!
