If you grew up watching the Simpsons or reading Peanuts in the daily newspaper and feel a bit old, you may not want to look at these ancient sculptures that depict famous cartoon characters.

I assure you, Bart Simpson isn't as old as these ancient sculptures make it seem. The sculptures are actually the recent work of Nadin Ospina, a talented sculptor that creates statues of various styles and designs, but has a particular interest in pre-Columbian scultpural styles. There's a certain irony about expressing modern American popular culture in a style that predates the existence of America itself. Other styles that Ospina borrows from include Aztec, Mayan and Incan designs.

Thousands of years from now, an anthropologist may come across these ancient sculptures only to be slightly confused about cultural borders and timelines.
