Based on the example of Shigir idols, the article reviews the possibility of using the ancient sacred objects as tools for orientation in space-time (according to dating of C-14, the age of the Grand Shigir Idol is 11,000 years). Author’s reconstructions of solar navigation technology are justified by: paleo-astronomic and metrological calculations; reflection of curve of shadow of the gnomon during the year in the proportions of the body and face of anthropomorphic figures; comparison of geometric basics of “faces” of Shigir idols, masks of Okunev stelae in Khakassia and vertical sundial on the milestones of the eighteenth century in St. Petersburg. The results show a rational assignment of objects of ancient culture.
