Archaeologists unearthed the Viminacijuma on Wednesday at the site “under Klepečkom” figurine old female deity about 4,000 years ago. It is the twin sister idol, which is located in all of world history of art.
The invention has sparked excitement of scientists, because of “Kličevačkog Idol” – the first figure of the goddess mysterious culture of Serbian Danube region, remained a photo.
The famous figurine, which was found in 1881 in the village of Klicevac and sparked worldwide sensation, has disappeared in the Austrian bombing of the Belgrade National Museum in the First World War.
– Finding almost identical idol is entitled resurrection of the goddess which, inter alia, a symbol of the town of Pozarevac – happily says Ilija Danković archaeologist from the Archaeological Institute. He and his colleagues Sasa Redzic and Mladen Jovicic discovered pantry with 25 figures and vessels from the tomb of the second millennium BC. – “Klicevac idol” was a sensation and was considered to be unique, so his disappearance was considered irrecoverable loss. Now, a miracle happened, because not only did we find almost identical “Klepečki idol”, but also a real treasury of the mysterious village.
The similarity of two figurines
Ceramic pots and idols found at the site Klepečka made of black ceramic richly decorated with white clay, as occurs only 1,000 years later in the Ionian Islands.
– It is a highly developed culture that had both the artists and technologists who were able to carry containers of thin walls or high strength. Color has not changed even after four millennia, which means that they knew the secrets of pigments. We have called in the help of top experts of different specialties, to work together to figure out what the culture was.

Director of the Viminacium archaeological park, Prof. Dr. Miomir Korac, adding that plain between hills Nosák, where this year discovered mammoth cemetery, and the remains of a Roman capital of Upper Moesia reveals another city from the second millennium BC.
– We dug a channel to farm the lake that made the rain at the site and found that 2,000 years BC there was a settlement that stretched hectares – says Prof Korac. – This discovery will force historians to rewrite the book, because it is a city of the Bronze or Copper Age, which is missing link between Lepenski Vir, Vinca and later civilizations.
Archaeologists point out that the tomb with ancient idol figures disclosed on the same hallowed ground where they buried the Celts, Romans and Serbs until the 19th century.
– This is proof of our thesis of the continuity of life in this region, from prehistory to the present day – says Korac. – This is a place where life is constantly swells, only civilization overflow and transform from one to another, but kept a good genetic code.
