The Mysterious Manisa Relief

A timeworn relief overlooks the city of Manisa, Turkey. It’s carved into a niche within a cliff on Mount Sipylus, and is so weathered and eroded it looks as though it’s in danger of crumbling from existence at any second.

If you look at the cliff closely, you can see the faded shape of a seated human sculpted into the granite. The figure wears what looks like a tall headdress, though over the centuries, the elements have gnawed away much of its head. Its arms rest across its chest, and its feet lie atop a stool.
