Ancient Beauty, Modern Vandalism: The Stone Terraces of the Bosnian Pyramid of the Moon

The Bosnian Pyramid of the Moon
 
The terraces have been excavated in the last 10 years under the supervision of Archaeological Park Foundation, a Bosnian NGO nonprofit created by the discoverer of the Bosnian Pyramid Complex, Dr. Semir Osmanagich.

The Bosnian Pyramid of the Moon is the second tallest documented ancient pyramid in the world -- second only in height to a pyramid that stands across the Fojnica River from it: The Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun.

The Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun
The terraces of stone on the Bosnian Pyramid of the Moon, as I've said in recent videos shot here in the pyramid complex in 2014 and 2015, is the most beautiful stonework I've ever seen, ancient or modern.

 

Excavated stone terrace on the Bosnian Pyramid of the Moon
This structural stone terrace, inclined into the pyramid for strength, was never meant to be seen; it was buried under several meters of clay only recently excavated by diligent volunteers and employees of the Archaeological Park Foundation (Bosnian NGO nonprofit).

Yet this stonework, and these stones, are beautifully crafted, and the craftsmanship of these artificially made (poured) stones, and the engineering involved in creating the inclined terraces that spiral around the Bosnian Pyramid of the Moon between massive layers of clay, rival that of any stonework on earth.

Although the stones making up the terraces on the Bosnian Pyramid of the Moon were never meant to be seen, the beauty of the terraces is undeniable.




 

 









Modern Vandalism

Unfortunately, people without any understanding of the importance of the first documented ancient pyramid complex in Europe have vandalized some of the stones terraces.
