Chhattisgarh state department of archaeology and culture plans to seek help from Nasa and Isro for research on 10,000-year-old rock paintings depicting aliens and UFOs in Charama region in Kanker district in tribal Bastar region.
Located about 130km from Raipur, the caves come under village Chandeli and Gotitola.

I wonder if the paintings have already been accurately dated, or if they are speculating on the age. That's an important detail.
If you have done any reading about the alien situation you would know that many believe the Movies and Tv are based on real things in many cases. There is the story of Eisenhower making an agreement with them long ago and many other stories that say they have been kept secret but world governments deal with them regularly.

There are several beliefs among locals in these villages. While few worship the paintings, others narrate stories they have heard from ancestors about "rohela people" — the small sized ones — who used to land from sky in a round shaped flying object and take away one or two persons of village who never returned.
From the site annotating the photos and I would guess that's why they are making the jump to these possibly being depictions of said "aliens". I guess the fascinating thing is that, they do bare a passing resemblance to the classic "grey" type "aliens" and might therefore suggest their image is deeply ingrained in our psyches. The local legend has a definite echo in the Western European tradition of the "little people from under the hill" who take people and that, whilst they are away, time passes totally differently for them and the world they originally came from.
Thankfully, we are beginning to re-evaluate many of these old legends with a slightly less hackneyed eye than previous dogmatic and elitist generations, who treated everything non western as "childish, inferior and an affront to their narrow minded views".
Grey aliens, also referred to as "Greys", "Grays", "Roswell Greys", and "Zetans", are alleged extraterrestrial beings whose existence is promoted in ufological, paranormal, and New Age communities, and who are named for their skin color. Around half of all reported alien encounters in the United States describe Grey aliens. Such claims vary in every respect including their nature (ETs, extradimensionals, demons, or machines), origins, moral dispositions, intentions, and physical appearances (even varying in their eponymous skin color). A composite description derived from overlap in claims would have Greys as small-bodied sexless beings with smooth grey-colored skin, enlarged head and large black eyes.
The origin of the idea of the Grey is commonly associated with the Betty and Barney Hill abduction claim which took place 1961, although skeptics see precursors in science fiction and earlier paranormal claims. The Grey aliens are also famous from the Roswell UFO incident from 1947. ...
In the 1893 article "Man of the Year Million", H. G. Wells envisaged humanity transformed into a race of grey-skinned beings, stunted and with big heads. (Compare the Morlocks of Wells's 1895 novel, The Time Machine, who appear greyish-white and large-eyed, but hairy.) In his 1901 book The First Men in the Moon, Wells described Selenites (natives of the Moon) as having grey skin, big heads, large black eyes and wasp-stings. He also briefly describes aliens resembling Greys brought down to Earth as food by the Martian antagonists of his 1898 novel The War of the Worlds.
In 1933, the Swedish novelist Gustav Sandgren, using the pen name Gabriel Linde, published a science-fiction novel called Den okända faran (The Unknown Danger), in which he describes a race of extraterrestrials: "[...] the creatures did not resemble any race of humans. They were short, shorter than the average Japanese, and their heads were big and bald, with strong, square foreheads, and very small noses and mouths, and weak chins. What was most extraordinary about them were the eyes – large, dark, gleaming, with a sharp gaze. They wore clothes made of soft grey fabric, and their limbs seemed to be similar to those of humans." The novel, aimed at young readers, included illustrations of the imagined aliens.

In 1965 newspaper reports of the Betty and Barney Hill abduction brought Greys to international attention. The alleged abductees, Betty and Barney Hill, claimed that in 1961 alien beings had abducted them and taken them to a saucer-shaped spaceship. (The term "Greys" did not come into usage until many years later, but the alleged beings described by Betty and Barney Hill generally fit many of the common traits of the so-called Greys.)

Well then.. I decided to do some photo enhancing on the part depicting the alien looking entity.
This just shocked me more, looks like those described by many abductees

I feel sad for the people who believe that every little thing in ancient cave art or writings describe aliens. Yes, I believe we've been visited and are currently being visited by a multitude of different beings and they may have had SOME influence in past cultures, but some people on this site want to point at every ancient thing and scream ALIENS!
"Ancient Aliens" on the History Channel is NOT CORRECT, they lie and fabricate and ignore things that don't agree with their viewpoints. Not every culture needs the assistance of extraterrestrials to help them achieve things, humans can do it fine on their own.

Lol yeah. The OP should really edit them in because I bet a large amount of people won't even visit the link.
The 2nd photo you linked is fascinating. I'm thinking it's a hoax or perhaps a more recent painting because unlike the others I can't seem to find any 'official' link to it.
It depicts a guy in flipping armour/helmet and with a sword/rapier like weapon for starters.

The fact you quote wiki really gives anyone who cares, a decent summary of your knowledge about this subject. Try looking up "Svartálfar" otherwise known as the "black elves" . Then again your sort tend to think that Stephen King invented the "Tommyknockers". Legends of a small and highly developed race of beings, who have a wholly ambiguous relationship with humans are legion from India to Ireland, in other words, ingrained into the psyche of the whole of the occidental population.
