Who isn’t familiar with memes these days? Anyone using the internet or frequently scrolling through their favorite social media platform has at least once come across a meme. Memes are generally images either edited or clicked at the right moment which seem funny to the viewers.
In recent years, Social media activists have up-voted the meme culture and there are several people online calling themselves “Memers”.
Up-recently, In the Sichuan province, Researchers came across a 3,000year-old gold mask with half a face. As soon as the researchers revealed the discovery over the news and other social media platforms, Memes started emerging out of nowhere, and soon enough, the internet was filled with these memes. Memers have named it the “Sanxingdui gold mask photo editing competition” online.
People across social media and image hosting websites started editing the mask on Animals to Action-figures and whatnot. Soon enough, the researchers from Sanxindui Museum joined the fun as they posted a picture of the mask with half of the mask drawn as a bear.
The museum soon revealed that the mask was made from 84% pure gold.
