V-shaped Sacrificial Holes. The "V" represents two limbs that orient to the east and northeast. Several of these carvings were found on the Absheron Peninsula near the village of Yeni Turkan but they were destroyed in 2003 by blasting of a nearby limestone quarry. At first these carvings were thought to be examples of erosion but after 14 were found in a localized area, they were judged to be manmade. Photo: Gallagher
