The farmer displays the baby-shaped fleece-flower root.


A "naked baby boy", which is actually a fleece-flower root at 62 centimeters long and 5.8 kilograms, was dug out of the ground by a farmer in Sichuan province on Oct. 22, 2009.

The baby-shaped fleece-flower root has a similar face with ancient people of Sanxingdui culture discovered in Guanghan City, Sichuan.

Zheng Dexun, the farmer, said he was not sure whether something good or bad might happen, so he decided to burry it back in the ground and let it go back to nature.
