I told you, I googled "Dinosaurs drawing ancient civilizations" got many results. I think I have seen stuff like that in museums as well.

Are you saying it's all circumstantial and sensationalism ?

Of course there are museums that display such historical artifacts like that. I don't know of any claiming them as evidence that dinos and humans coexisted though. The Ta Prohm carving is unique, in that there is nothing else like it found anywhere else in the entire Angkor Wat complex, which is spread out over an enormous area in northern Cambodia. As large as the complex is, one would think there'd be a few others around. Anyway, you didn't answer the question. What do you think the image represents and why? Do you think it represents a dinosaur? And if so, what kind?

Yes, I think that is the best working hypothesis.

1. Armadillo

3. Fanciful rendering of a hippo

^ Here is an area where some art history may come in useful (and i will conceded that there may not be many of them!)

I see some worshiped animals drawn out of proportion in piety. Probably some extinct animals we don't even know about and perhaps some mythical monsters.

Would googling "reptilian cities inside hollow earth" and getting results make reptilians a science topic ?
Closed.
