HYBRID LIBRARIAN Presents … 10 ANCIENT IMAGES OF ALIENS AND UFOs
It is still the common belief that UFOs and aliens began to be reported in World War II, but ancient drawings of creatures and strange objects discovered in the world seem to refute this notion.
NACHDENCKLICH-DREYFACHES WUNDER-ZEICHEN / 1697
On November 4, 1697, a strange phenomenon supposedly occurred in Hamburg, Germany where “big and bright wheels” appeared in the sky to the astonishment of the crowd gathered there. An article with 3 images was published based on witness testimonies. It showed 2 round objects floating in the sky with a logo like the Xbox. UFOs then “blew out” and “disappeared from view of thousands of viewers.”
PAINTINGS IN THE CAVE TASSILI N’AJJER / 10,000 BC
Tassili n’Ajjer is a range of mountains located in the Algerian part of the Sahara Desert. It is the best known for its prehistoric site where an enormous collection of vestiges and rock art has been found. Among the estimated 15,000 works of art discovered, many are rare representations of recurring “one eye” entities surrounded by UFOs, or humanoid silhouettes with large skulls.
Although generally archaeologists considered them only a fascinating and unique folklore, the mysterious paintings in the cave of Tassili n’Ajjer are often referred to by ufologists as one of the best evidences of the alien presence on Earth in the far past.
PRODIGIORUM AC OSTENTORUM CHRONICON / 1557
The Prodigiorum Ac Ostentorum Chronicon is a book written by the Swiss humanist and physicist Conrad Lycosthenes. It was created as an anthology of strange and unexplained events observed in the medieval era. He is best known for his mysterious illustration on page 494, which seems to show a space rocket. This description details a rocket-type object that appeared in Arabia in 1479.
THE SUMMER TRIUMPH 1538
“The Triumph of the Summer” is a large tapestry created in Belgium showing the victorious parade of a hierarch, but it also shows strange objects floating in the sky, in the upper left and right corners of the work. In fact, these strange objects resemble the earliest depictions of 20th Century UFOs. The interesting thing is that similar hat-shaped objects have been seen in other ancient works of art in the world such as
- “The Life of Mary”, another tapestry of the Fourteenth Century
- The manuscript Parjnaparamita Sutra, and
- A 29,000-year-old rock painting in Tanzania.
THE BAPTISM OF CHRIST 1710
Created by the Dutch painter Aert de Gelder, one of the most talented students of Rembrandt, “The Baptism of Christ” shows Jesus illuminated by rays of light coming from a circular object in the sky.
Some think it is a representation of God’s intervention, or perhaps the opposite…the actual appearances of unknown objects in the sky also could be misinterpreted as divine interventions?
“Utsuro-bune” refers to an unidentified object that left the sea on the east coast of Japan in 1803. It was documented in an ink drawing of the book “Ume- No-Chiri,” published in 1844.
Many texts and works of art from the later Edo period mention an atypical object, and the witnesses describe these sightings as an empty vessel of metal and glass, showing strange symbols inside (in red).
THE VIRGIN WITH THE CHILD AND SAN JUAN INFANTE / 1490 approx.
A famous painting in the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, Italy, “The Virgin with the Child and Saint John the Baptist,” was attributed to several artists of the fifteenth century. It shows the mother of Jesus praying for him with St. John, but something unusual happens in the background. There is a man and a dog looking at a strange object in the sky. Again, this sighting led to questioning the ancient beliefs … … and to what level they were influenced by UFOs.
ART WANDJINA AT LEAST 4,000 BC
The Wandjinas are celestial beings and creators of the earth and people in the aboriginal Australian folklore. Often UFO enthusiasts say they are representations of extraterrestrial beings The Wandjinas are described as white creatures with mute faces and large round eyes. The best-known Wandjina art is found in Kimberley, where 4,000-year-old paintings have been discovered. Australian Aborigines are perceived as the oldest continuous culture on the planet and the drawings of these entities can have dates of up to more than 75,000 years.
THE MIRACLE OF THE SNOW 1430 approx.
According to legend, the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore was built in a specific area of Rome where a rare substance that looked like snow fell from the sky during a warm day in August. Created by the painter Masolino da Panicale, El Milagro de la Nieve was inspired by this mysterious substance.
