The Ascending Sheep Explaination

Ascending Sheep Panel

First let me say that you will never find me referring to the Native American Petroglyphs and Pictographs as "Rock Art," I find the term as diminishing, insinuating that the Native people were to stupid to write and yet here we have a form of communication which holds the keys to the most complex hieroglyphic systems known to man. Don't make me explain that... 

So… For the few...  who inquired to know more, I offer the following with some explanation. To understand the basis of my comments in whole, one would have to have a foundation of study in the symbol base meanings not created by, but rediscovered and used by LaVan Martineau, understand his hypothesis and those things which I have discovered as a result of hundreds of examples which I have encountered of the last near 30 years. You can get a copy of my findings upon request, maybe... a chapter from one of my books which I believe will help you to understand this more clearly.

I can't tell you everything about the following images, and what I say certainly does not make it so; however I can tell you what I see based on my observations over the many years. I have panels that I have studied for over 25 years that I still only have a small part of, whereas others seem to flow.

To begin with, the quadruped which many always see as a goat, deer or some animal such as this panel we call them sheep, actually have nothing to do with an animal whatsoever. The quadruped was designed to give example of lateral movement. It is a fictitious animal used solely for this purpose, unless other forms of incorporation are included. In the case of this panel it is the lateral movement and some characteristics of "The People"

To get clarity from a panel, the main objective is to learn the subject of the panel as this helps to attribute the correct or intended derivative words to the many symbols and we can only apply their base meaning when the subject is unknown. Because I have in part a subject in mind I can at least identify some things, however all must be taken as a hypothesis as I can think of no way to prove it, just as I cannot prove that Wallace Budge had a distorted view of Egyptian hieroglyphs, nor any more than he or his faithful followers can prove that I am incorrect.

The main figure on the left I can see right off is the great deceiver, not because it looks like it with first impressions, but because of a few things I see. First impressions are good to note, but until the panel is understood to a degree I advise not to let it be your guide, other wise all Native American glyphs will be come the works of ancient aliens, and we don’t need another Giorgio A. Tsoukalos, Wallace Budge or Francois Champollion. If you detect a hint of animosity, you are correct, but I try to keep it at bay. The people who WROTE these things upon the rocks for future generations are my ancestors be it in a small way, and I have grown weary of unsupported criticism by those who cannot provide evidence to the contrary and do nothing but take pictures chanting "ooow... aaah... isn't that pretty" while bringing your attention to the delicate dirt.

Now we can start with some analysis. First and foremost, note the entire panel is painted in red. Red denotes a spiritual concept rather than the material or physical one. An example might be a simple line which carries a base meaning of path, trail or go. If pecked it is a physical path or trail, if painted red it is a spiritual path or trail, Red being representation of “Not of this physical world” or it is of a spiritual nature,

Now take note of the main deity’s head which takes the shape of an oval or egg with a bit of a pointed side. This denotes “Objectionable” and this is only its base meaning. However if we are correct in our impressions of this figure, I cannot think of a better way to identify the individual it represents, his intent, disposition and/or character, by using this symbol as his head, this character would be thee advisory himself...

We also find the symbol for crooked [path] which is an extension of the straight line meaning path, yet in this case is a crooked path and coming from the mouth tells me that  his intent is to give crooked words to find the crooked path of life.

We see his left hand in the position of the symbol which represents beckoning or to receive and with this behind his back (effortless or hidden intent) and the straight line of  sheeple coming to him with out his effort (arm extended to receive behind back) shows their wiliness to receive the crooked deeds (hand and crooked line downward). Those in front of him however took some effort but notice they do not come to him directly in a straight line, it took the deceiving tongue and notice the fat bodies, those fat from life or guided by the material things, But the spiraling or wavy line they come by, denotes either the crooked path they took or the slow process of causing one to go back and forth from the straight path to the crooked path.

The figure standing in the main figure's right hand with the one arm of the main deity being some what in the position of speaking, the main entity has the small figures attention, It shows that the fat figure in the hand has been received by the deceiving tongue and has become fat (wealthy, rich, or like concept) having not turned aside (head of figure). His arms are in the position of doing nothing or barring as well as his legs which to me signifies his inability at this point to do anything of his own will.

We also see the legs of the main deity in the position of Commencing and having incorporated into it the meaning of veering to one side (curved line). We also see what most would see as a tail but is not, of this deity, and taking the form of a path leading downward and coming from his back (not where a tail would be) shows the true intention (that which is behind), of bringing the people down.

One last thing I see is what LaVan Martineau gives the meaning of “Good Journey or Nothing there to inhibit the way” and this is what most would call horns on the main deity. This is the symbol of the double line or parallel lines (Path) with nothing in between. And I can see why LaVan gave this base meaning. However I feel there is a bit more to it when used on deities and quadrupeds. I think it shows intent. In the case of the deity the lines extend from the back of the head which again shows hidden intent or what is NOT the intent. His intent would be displayed on top of the head (such as is the case with the small figure in his hand), where as that which is in the back of the mind (head) is NOT the intent. I cannot think of another way to put it.

This is as much as I am compelled to say concerning this panel, at this time I cannot comment further. I hope this at least gives some ideas.

In closing, let me remind the reader, this is considered as a hypothesis, although very much my truth and my proof due to hundreds and hundreds of examples and testing arriving at the same results, I cannot offer any other evidence. If nothing more I hope you enjoy...

The Gold Cavern of the Breña Part TWO

Discovery of the Banditos Cache

One day after spending much time with the maps and place names and reading very carefully the main descriptive clues, I was following what I felt was a correct path either on Google earth or on the Topo maps. As I was taking the path north as described, I came to what were very obviously the two described unique natural features. One of these natural features is rare enough to find but to find two of them side by side as shown on the old map is indeed an extreme rarity, and to find them according to all the other details at the very place described it was clear I had found it. I could not believe my eyes; I had to go over it several times before I could believe it. I could not wait to call John to show and tell him, but my need to be certain would put this off for many months in order to find additional evidences.

After discovering the main cache location, I was trying to learn more about the whole story thinking there must be others who may know something about this, the main cache site has an unusual name and doing an internet search only one hit came up which took me to a web site wherein someone had posted a similar story, yet with much fewer details. As it turned out, the individual who posted the story was also trying to learn what he could and after talking with him for some time, he agreed to send me his four stories that he had found in very old journals, one of which had been published in a turn of the century treasure book. These four other stories were written by four other captains of the same gang of banditos but at different time frames spanning nearly 150 years. Each told their own stories but all talked of the same famous cache site of which their goal was explained to permanently cut off the supplies of Gold to Spain in hopes that the Spanish would leave their country. In addition, their goal was to fill this cavern with only gold which was mentioned to be located in an unusual geographical feature. The silver is given to have been put in other places nearby, and it would seem by the old document that their goal of filling the cavern with only gold, finally occurred in the late 1700s after nearly 200 years of robberies.

I found an unusual name in the document that I had first received that I knew did not exist in the other four documents and made mention of it to one individual. He responded and was very curious as to how I could have possibly known that name because he knew it was on his document which he was certain he knew no one else had. After talking with him for some time we finally decided we had the same story and we exchanged documents, but I never told him that I knew where the cache was. I told him the story of how I had received it and he reciprocated with his story of how he got his copy. He explained to me that he was in the very same village in which he had relatives who knew the family who shared the document with Jim. It would seem that at nearly the same time Jim got his copy, my new contact in Mexico was shown the very same document and he was allowed to type verbatim the Spanish contents of the old document. It is a copy of this which he shared with me in exchange for my English copy. As a result of receiving this Spanish copy, I have discovered that Jim’s English copy contains some mistakes; nothing serious but nonetheless it contained errors.

A year after Jim’s passing, my friend John called Jim’s wife to offer his condolences, he asked about the copy of the Spanish document and it was discovered that it had been lost due to a fire.

The Old Document of 1770

Of the 5 documents telling of this main cache location, the Old Spanish Document of 1770 is the most descriptive one. This document is centered on a particular robbery which resulted in the death of many banditos and 60 plus Spanish soldiers. The shipment (by the way they talked about it) was considered to be one of the largest of the shipments stolen over a period of nearly 200 years by the banditos. It is said that within that the shipment were 400 Mules carrying silver of about 150-200 lbs (Carga) per mule and 80 mules carrying gold. This robbery and the two loads of gold accomplished their goal to fill the cavern in this 1770 occurrence. Another cavern nearby was being used to cache the silver.

In 1728 another account of a robbery is given by an earlier Captain of the Banditos that is about the same magnitude as the 1770 robbery. Just these two robberies, conducted nearly 40 years apart, represent in today’s value in the hundreds of millions. Imagine if the 10 other cache sites mentioned in the 5 documents were found, and you were to include all the gold and silver which had been used to fill the main cavern for nearly 200 years, the main cache site could reach well into the upper hundred millions. Explicit instructions are given in at least two of the documents, but the 1770 document is without a doubt the most descriptive, but this is only beneficial if you can discover the locations of the place names and the likelihood up until about 1986 was very slim... unless you happened to be the friend who was one of my sub-contractors and just happened to be looking for the vast lost treasure of the Brena.

The Gold Cavern of the Breña

To start off, let me say... I would not expect one soul to believe the following...

It was in the late 1500's, a small group of Banditos banded together for the purpose of cutting off the supplies of Gold and Silver to Spain, in hopes that it would cause these unwelcome strangers of their land to leave for good. Over the next two hundred years the number of banditos grew, Captains of the Gangs came and went, each leaving behind their written version of their experiences and handed down to their posterity. At some point, these Mexican Indians set a goal, to fill their cache site being a natural cavern, with gold only… I am sure it was a joke at the time, However they put only Gold into the cavern and the silver in another location. There is also the overflow location when they finally reached their goal in the late 1700’s.

There was at one point in the early 1900’s a cache of 4 million (Value in that day and much to small) naming the items that was found, and it was imagined to be one of the many caches of these banditos, and very well could have been one of the many sites mentioned, however although there are still some who seek these sites today and look to far south for reasons I cannot give, the information they seek in order to find the right place, and they have not known of… is here in my hands.

It was some time in the mid-1970s that a somewhat well-known treasure hunter in Utah, who we will refer to as Jim, was investigating an off-shore treasure off the east coast of Mexico to the north of the city of Veracruz. Jim became somewhat well-known by the locals and while enjoying some free time in a small coastal village, an elderly Mexican gentleman approached him and asked him if he would be willing to take a look at some very old documents handed down from his ancestors. The old man explained the documents in summary and it became very clear to Jim that this was no small treasure story.

Now the old man had traveled far from his inland village for whatever reasons, yet Jim arranged to travel to the old village asking the old man if he would like to accompany him. It was necessary to travel to the village of the old man’s birth as this is where the documents were kept and were never taken from. Arrangements were made to view the old documents which Jim studied intently having a fair understanding of Spanish. It was quite clear that Jim’s suspicions were correct; he had never read anything quite this fascinating. It was as compelling as such stories as the alleged lost Aztec Gold of Arizona or Utah; this was clearly one of the big ones.

After reviewing the documents in the company of family members and descendants of the document’s author (who was a Captain of the Banditos in about 1770); Jim, trying very hard to keep his composure, asked if he could make a copy of the document. To his surprise, they said that he could. The problem Jim had was that the nearest Zerox machine was nearly 20 miles away and to take the document away from the village was unheard of, but it was agreed that two of the people from the village would accompany Jim to the town with the Zerox machine to make copies.

After this part of the story, I only have bits and pieces of what Jim did in the years to come. A few years later in about 1980 Jim befriended another man whom we will call John. John and Jim shared many adventures over the next ten years, but as it often happens there was a bit of a falling out where the two separated as friends and kept in touch but no longer shared in their adventures. While John and Jim were working together, Jim showed John all the details of the story including the copied hand-written document which John also studied from time to time as they wanted the best English translation they could get. Jim never gave John a copy of the hand written document but he did share with him copies of the English translation, a copy of the hand drawn map which came with the original hand-written document and Jim’s maps that he used to try to locate the many cache sites mentioned in the documents, but especially the main location or main cache which is 3 separate sites.

The biggest problem Jim had according to John is that the place names were only known by a few locals in the vicinity of the main site area. It would be another 16 years or so before the equivalency of the United States topographical maps were made in the area; something Jim did not have access to. In 1909 a newspaper article emerged telling of a wonderful treasure which was discovered in the area, the article said that it was found near a key place name mentioned in the old original document. This occurrence is one of the reasons why so many have discarded the story as being found and possibly why so many have been led to look in the wrong place.

As a result of my personal research pertaining to similar topics and those research topics which are somewhat unrelated to Spanish Treasure Hunting, I met John in about the year 2001. John, although one of the nicest guys in the Spanish lore game that I had ever met, was not a very trusting soul and was very slow to share information and he was also very cautious as to whom he shared it with. It would be another 3 years before John would share the information with me.

Shortly after meeting John, another friend whom I will call Mark approached me with a document which would later prove to be Jim’s English copy which (unknown to Jim) was copied when Jim took it to Mark in the 70s to ask for help in unraveling the mystery of it. Apparently Jim took his eyes off the document 10 minutes longer than he should have. When Mark brought the story to me, it was clear that he knew he could not unravel the mystery of the location; if he had thought for a moment that he could, I am certain he would have never brought it to me. He asked me to take it home and read it and see what I thought, hoping to get my insight on the details.

As I read the story I was absolutely amazed at what I was reading, often envisioning what this massive hoard must look like. Never at this time did I ever think, expect or imagine that in a few short years that I would actually find it. I was so taken in by the story and being a real sucker for a mystery, I just couldn't leave it alone. I almost immediately began the research process in order to discover the end results. I knew it was unlikely but I knew it was possible and I thrive on the challenge. Within just a few short weeks I had ordered the topographical maps mentioned earlier and I was well on my way to unraveling this mystery.

In about late 2002 or 2003, I met John as a result of part of my research. I was taken in by John; yes he was secretive but he was different than many others that I had met. There was a real genuineness about him; it was a hit and John has been my good friend ever since. I believe it was sometime in about 2004 that John brought to me a story he wanted me to review. By this time, John and Jim were no longer working together and Jim had almost forgotten the enormous cache site precisely 1066 miles south of his home which he had never found. Jim passed away in October of 2012, may he rest in peace.

Now going back a few years, I had received the 1: 50,000 scale Topographic maps of the area in question that were created in 1986 and before opening them I decided to take them with me to work to study them hoping to find the place names. While at work, I was waiting for the sub-contractors to show up so that I could pay them. The sub-contractor who was coming to get paid that day I had not yet gotten to know very well and so when he came in I asked him where he was from to strike up a conversation. He told me that he was from a city near to the area of the cache sites. Of course that information raised an eyebrow and so I asked him if he knew one of the place names in the old document, he responded telling me that it is where he grew up. Ok now things were getting… coincidental as I call it but I do not believe in coincidences. I asked him if he knew some of the other place names which he did. So then I asked if he wouldn't mind looking at some maps, and he responded in kind and said he would be glad to. I went out to my truck and brought the map tube in and pulled out the maps. Upon unrolling the main map which I suspected of having the majority of the place names from the old document, the sub-contractor said, “Hey, I used to work for the company that made these maps before I came to the United States.” He explained to me that his job was the field checking of place names and features largely because he was very familiar with many of them. Unbelievable I thought, we proceeded to go over some of the place names of which he would point to the places I had asked about. Now what I didn't know and wouldn't notice for another few years was that a majority of the names I had asked about and he had pointed at were in fact on the map, but the writing was so obscure that I had never noticed it; not even when he pointed at it. In about 2010, I discovered that I could download the same maps of a 2001 edition in pdf format wherein all layers were very well defined and it wasn't until nearly five years after I had discovered the main cache location, that I could see the names and they were right where I had supposed they should be based on the very old but descriptive document.
