Australian entrepreneur Dick Smith has offered $5,000 to find the creator of one of the country’s greatest unsolved modern mysteries. The Marree Man is one of world’s largest geoglyphs showing an Aboriginal man hunting with a throwing stick. It first appeared in a desert in 1998 about 600 km north of Adelaide. Despite clues and leads, nobody has stepped forward to claim responsibility for its creation. The figure is large enough to be seen from space measuring at 4.2 km tall, about as long as 46 soccer fields. Smith believes there was more than one person involved in the making of the carving. He said the artwork was professionally done and had no mistakes. "I can't see how it was done by one person, you'd have to have three or four to do it, and it would take weeks to put in.” – Dick Smith Smith is willing to keep the identity of the creator a secret if they were to reveal themselves.
