Thousands of years ago, ancient people around the globe created a
number of petroglyphs and cave paintings.
Why ancient man depicted
strange beings with 5 or 6 fingers, helmets, sandals, and what
appear to be space suits is a mystery no one has been able to
Millions of people around the world firmly believe we have been
visited by extraterrestrial beings for millennia.
But if such highly advanced beings visited us in the distant past…
How did ancient
cultures react 2000-3000 years ago?
Did ancient man freak
out when 'highly advanced' spaceships landed on our planet?
Or did ancient
cultures glorify the visitors, referring to them as gods?
Strangely, many ancient
civilizations like the Ancient Chinese, Maya, Aztec and Inca, speak
of visitors that came from the heavens bringing great knowledge to
But even before ancient civilizations recorded their legends and
spoke of gods that came down to Earth, people were recording what
today is interpreted as 'alien visitations'.
If we take a look at cave art and petroglyphs around the globe, we
will notice that in all corners of the planet, ancient man drew on
rock all sorts of important events, and in nearly all petroglyphs
found to date, there are representations of mysterious and strange
beings that do not resemble human beings.
However, what is even more fascinating is that even though these
petroglyphs are found scattered across the entire planet, the
depictions of the mysterious creatures are eerily similar.
This has lead many to
believe that ancient mankind that carved and painted the mystery
beings must have seen them at one point in history.
Let us go ahead and take a look at some of the most amazing
depictions of ancient aliens discovered to date!
The Wandjina cave
paintings are one of our favorite cave paintings discovered to date.
There are a number of
interesting details about the cave art found in Kimberley,
Australia, in 1838. First of all the age of the cave paintings has
become a subject of debate among numerous researchers. Some even
suggest that the mystery art called
the Wandjina could be well over
100,000 years old...
Among the numerous pieces of 'ancient Picasso art' ancient people
depicted beings that measure up to six meters in height.
Locals refer to the mystery beings as the "wandjinas". These
mysterious beings are said to have brought civilization and
prosperity to the people, and like many other ancient cultures
around the globe indicate, the enigmatic "wandjinas" also came from
Even more impressive is
the fact that numerous ancient cultures around the globe have in
their destroy a serpent or dragon. Strangely, the "wandjina's"
symbol was a feathered serpent.
But even more fascinating are other depiction of the Wandjina, who
are depicted as strange humanoid figures without mouths, with huge
black eyes and pale white faces that are surrounded by strange
paintings have received all kinds of interpretation:
representation of human beings, gigantic owls, down to
the theory of Ancient Astronauts,
as beings who visited Earth in the distant past...
10,000-year-old cave paintings in India depict ancient aliens
Another fascinating discovery of what could be interpreted as
ancient aliens can be found in India where researchers discovered a
number of strange pieces of ancient art resembling what many have
interpreted as otherworldly beings and disc-shaped
According to Indian
experts, it's as if people, 10.000 years ago made these
paintings while looking at science fiction movies.
The set of curious ancient art is located inside caves located
near the town of Charama in the Kanker district.
One archaeologist from India firmly believes that this art
clearly reflects that 10,000 years ago, people knew we were not
alone in the universe.
Bhagat made some very interesting comments while speaking about
the enigmatic cave art:
"The paintings are
done in natural colors that have hardly faded despite the years.
The strangely carved
figures are seen holding weapon-like objects and do not have
clear features. Especially, the nose and mouth are missing. In
few pictures, they are even shown wearing space suits."
Tassili n'Ajjer - Proof of Ancient Astronauts?
It seems that there is plenty of evidence of ancient alien
In addition to the above-mentioned cave paintings, ancient art found
in Tassili n'Ajjer seems to illustrate mysterious creatures with
helmets gloves and strange suits.
Today, experts have managed to catalogue around 5,000 cave paintings
in the region. Regrettably, around 20% of them remain visible today,
since most of them were destroyed by erosion.
The age of the cave art is believed to be around 10,000 to 15,000
years old. Among the sheer number of rock art found, ancient man
drew giraffes, ostriches, elephants, oxen, alligators and even
hippos; demonstrating that the Sahara region was full of life in the
However, the most
incredible feature are the mysterious depictions of strange beings
with helmets and suits, which according to a number of researchers
resemble modern-day astronauts.
Why would the ancient
inhabitants of Tassili n'Ajjer depict the humanoid figures with
helmet-like objects and spacesuits unless they did not seem
Is it possible, as
ancient astronaut theorists suggest, that the natives of the
Tassili Caves depicted the ancient astronaut that visited them
in the past 10,000 years ago?
According to many
researchers, it is a possibility.
Another set of intriguing pieces of ancient art depicting strange
beings can be found in Peru at the mysterious
Petroglyphs of Toro Muerto, which
according to many depict strange humanoid figures that do not
resemble human beings.
The petroglyphs cover an area of several kilometers in length.
Toro Muerto, which
translated, means Dead Bull was named because of the herds of
livestock that commonly died because of dehydration in the area.
Among the countless carvings at Toro Muerto, there are interesting
depictions of what appear to be,
and semi-realistic figures, zoomorphic figures like jaguars,
condors, camels, and fish...
The ancients also
sunflowers and trees
without branches, geometric symbols, zig-zags, square, diamond
shapes and some inscriptions, intaglios, and bizarre writings
all over an area of approximately four kilometers.
The most intriguing
depictions at Toro Muerto are those of beings that do not share much
resemblance to normal human beings.
Even more fascinating is
the fact that some of the petroglyphs of Toro Muerto bear a freakish
petroglyphs found in Australia
where ancient man also depicted mysterious beings with 'halos'
around their heads.
The beings depicted at
Toro Muerto were carved with a number of strange characteristics,
like antennas on top of their heads...
Petroglyphs at Carahunge, Armenia's Stonehenge
This ancient site located in modern-day Armenia is fascinating for a
number of reasons.
First of all, many
researchers claim that the site itself predates both Stonehenge
in England and the Pyramids of Giza.
This ancient complex occupies over 7 hectares and offers its
visitors a number of strange carvings created by early
civilizations that inhabited the region thousands of years ago.
Among the numerous carvings, ancient man depicted what appeared
to be strange beings with elongated heads and almond-shaped
eyes, eerily similar to 'modern-day' representations of
