Batman vs Superman

This is the Vinča "Superman" figurine from the Late Neolithic settlement mound Borđoš near Novi Bečej, Serbian Banat. The figurine is dated to 5300 - 4500 BC. 



You can read more about this archaeological site in this article: "The Late Neolithic settlement mound Borđoš near Novi Bečej, Serbian Banat, in a multiregional context – Preliminary results of geophysical, geoarchaeological and archaeological research"

What I thought was very funny is that only few weeks ago I wrote an article about the prosopomorphic (face like) lids from Vinča culture (6th - 5th millennium BC) which as it turns out all look like Batman masks. 




So is it possible that the fight between the two super heroes started in the 6th millennium BC in Serbia, in the Vinča culture? 

Behold! Batman vs Superman, Vinča style :)



Who says archaeology and history have to be boring....
