THIS IS THE POSEID TRIDENT. IF TRIDENT, DOUBLE-HEADED AXE WAS A SIGN OF POWER AS AGYPTIAN MACE. THAT’S WHY THE DOUBLE AXE SIGN WAS FOUND IN CAVE WHERE RITUALS WERE PERFORMED BECAUSE WAS THE SIGN OF ALLMIGHTY !

Most striking in this regard is a small plaquette from Göbekli Tepe. From the left to the right, it shows a snake moving upwards, a stylized human figure (?) with raised arms, and a bird.
