Colombian residents have been left wondering ‘is this the monolith that controls them all’ after a gold structure appeared in a rural region over the weekend – the fifth found so far.
After the first mysterious monolith appeared in the desert in the US state of Utah at the end of November, others soon popped up in California, Romania, and the Isle of Wight.
The four monoliths were all metal and silver in colour, however a fifth structure has appeared in Colombia that is golden – leaving locals wondering if it could be the ‘master monolith’.
The monolith was found in the municipality of Chia in the Colombian department of Cundinamarca over the weekend while another monolith was discovered at Compton Beach in the Isle of Wight.
The images show the golden monolith, with three sides like all the others, standing in a field.
The origin of the gold monolith has baffled local with many speculating that it was placed there by extraterrestrials.
However, a community called ‘The Most Famous Artist’ founded by American artist Matty Mo has since claimed credit.
The group is reportedly selling three full-sized monoliths similar to the ones found in different parts of the world for a price tag of USD 45,000 (GBP 33,413) each.
When Mo was asked if the group was claiming responsibility for the monolith discovered in the Isle of Wight over the weekend, he responded: “The monolith is out of my control at this point. Godspeed to all the aliens working hard around the globe to propagate the myth.”
The mystery continues.
