Stone People of Guizai Mountain

Chinese archaeologists have announced the discovery of a large cache of stone statues, at least 5,000 in all, in the Nanling Mountains of Hunan. Guizai Mountain, where the stones were found, has been a sacred site for thousands of years, and the stone statues may have been deposited over a period that began around 3000 BC and extended into the Qin Dynasty.
