Sandstone statue from Kernosovsky in Ukraine, dating to around 2500 to 3000 BCE. A product of the Yamnaya Culture, that is, the probable proto-Indo-Europeans.
This was discovered by schoolchildren in 1973. It is 4 feet (1.2 m) tall and weighs 1700 pounds (950 kg).
Ukrainian archaeologists identify this as a god, but in western Europe they think Bronze Age stelae are more likely to represent semi-divine heroes, which we know were very important in the slightly later religion of the early Iron Age.
