New Carving Found In Israel

From Ha'aretz: A mysterious new carving has surfaced at the source of the Amud River :
A few hundred meters from the site at which the stone was found there are ancient ruins on which the caliphs from the Moslem Umayyad period - the seventh and eighth centuries C.E. - built a magnificent palace with many domes that could be seen from a distance. Tepper thinks that the square domed building was carved in the stone by a man who lived in the area during that period, immortalizing the palace.
It looks like a dude holding a bong, standing on his dog, and trying to figure out how his briefcase got so huge, so naturally, I think it rocks.
