Iberian/Celtic Beret

This photograph of a stone carving depicting a man wearing a beret, comes from this web site on Celtic / Iberian finds.  Apart from the description (below), no information on it's age and exact origin, but if this is a real prehistoric artifact, the story of the beret's origin through Noah's arc becomes a lot more acceptable...

 "The figure is 64 cm high: the head is spherical with strong chin, straight nose and eyes bulging, the mouth is formed with incised lines. On the head a circular cap  with irregular thickness and a circumference of 56 cm. shows, very similar to a beret.The body consists of a flat block in the back and curved front of where the arms stick out in an arc coming together of 21 cm each."
