Husain , this is a beautiful capture, with excellent color & pov.. I am a part time student of history, & I have been told this figure is from the Annunaki Civilization... Please see Lamassau.... I have been told the Annunaki were the most advanced, brilliant Civilazation & were the first intelligent life on Earth... Annunaki means “ those from the Heavens came.....
