About the Possibility of Existence on Sleza the Celtic 'Nemeton'
The author considers the chronological issues of the enigmatic, pre-historic sculptures made of local granite from Sleza Massif and its nearness. He calls into question if they are dated at Hallstadtt period. He also suggests that the statues of human figures (especially 'the mushroom' and 'the girl with fish') could be connected with sculptures from Celtic lands dated at 6th-4th century B.C. He postulates the possibility of existence on Sleza the Celtic 'nemeton' in 4th-3rd century B.C., while the adjoining territory was settled by Celts. It is likely that two stone statues of bears (?) which resembled the bulls and pigs sculptures known from central part of Pyrenean Peninsula, are dated at the same period.
