"It is in a protected area on an archaeological site."

Another One

As soon as the mysterious twelve-foot metal monolith disappeared from the rocky landscape of Utah, a new one has appeared.

But this one, according to the UK tabloid the Daily Mail, is located in northern Romania, a far cry from the gnarled mesas and rust-colored arches of southern Utah [nice].

“It is on private property, but we still don’t know who the monolith’s owner is yet.” Neamt Culture and Heritage official Rocsana Josanu said in a statement, as quoted by The Daily Mail. “It is in a protected area on an archaeological site.”

Archeological Site

The monolith was reportedly spotted last Thursday near the city of Piatra Neamt in northeastern Romania near a historic fortress believed to have been destroyed by Romans in the second century AD.

And yep, yet again, we have no idea how it got there or why it exists. Sound familiar?

Rushed Job

This particular monolith seems to have been a rush job, or subject to damage — pictures of the installation show a surface marked by uneven circular etchings. The base also shows clear signs of recent digging. If aliens were responsible for this one, they were clearly on a tight budget and turnaround time this time around.

The much-better-buffed monolith spotted in Utah last week had been at the site for at least four years, according to Google Earth satellite imagery.

The New York Times also speculated the Utah monolith may have been the work of late minimalist artist John McCracken — or one of his biggest fans.
