Trying to find some confirmation on images I see floating around the web. Any of these been debunked or proven and confirmed to be very real?

Below is a compiled list of images depicting UFOs and Spacemen/alien looking humanoids.

7,000 B.C. - The Lolladoff plate, discovered in Nepal, appears to show a hovering disk-shaped object in the center and a small being, resembling an alien resembling an alien gray, beside it. The circular pattern is reminescent of the spiraling movement of consciousness - Golden Ratio - Sacred Geometry of creation.

This cave painting is c.10,000 BC and is from Val Camonica, Italy.
It appears to depict two beings in protective suits holding strange implements.

Strange suited figure found in Kiev. It dates to ca. 4,000 BC.

7000 year old petroglyph discovered in the province of Querétaro, Mexico in 1966. There are 4 figures with outstretched arms below a large oval object radiating what appear to be beams of light.

Ecuador, Ancient Figures in Space Suits

Petroglyphs dating back thousands of years ago by ancient Indians in the American Southwest. According to Indian folklore, two objects collided high in the sky and one crash-landed in the region of Death Valley. Some men arrived (presumably in another ship) and spent some time repairing the damaged craft and were observed by the local Indians. The two images below may possibly depict the ship (left) used by the men who came to repair the damaged craft. In comparing the two images, the one on the right seems to depict structural damage around the edges and the bottom. Could it be the one that allegedly crashed? The images are stills taken from an old TV series entitled "In search of..." hosted by Leonard Nimoy.

Sego Canyon, Utah. Estimated up to 5,500 BC.

6000 BC from Tassili, Sahara Desert, North Africa.

Two cave paintings from Tanzania. Both are estimated to be up to 29,000 years old. The one on the top is located in Itolo and depicts several disc shaped objects. The other painting is from Kolo shows four entities surrounding a women. Notice also the entity looking down from inside some sort of box or object.

Wandjina petroglyphs from Kimberley, Australia.
About 5,000 years old and may represent alien beings.

Illustration depicting a sighting of a burning wheel in the year 900 over Japan.

This is a tapestry called Summer's Triumph It was created in Bruges in 1538 and presently resides at the Bayerisches National Museum. You can clearly see several disc shaped objects in the top of the tapestry.

Illustration depicts a sighting by two Dutch ships in the North Sea of an object moving slowly in the sky. It appeared to be made by two disks of different size. The source for this account is one of the books entitled Theatrum Orbis Terrarum by Admiral Blaeu. These books were compilations of articles by different authors and consisted of detailed accounts of long engagements at sea, cartography information, etc.

In France there was a coin minted in 1680 that shows a hovering disc shaped UFO with what appears to be port holes or lights around the outer rim.

In Egypt there exists a star clock for the Precession of the Equinoxes and an electric light bulb that dates to 2600 BC. An electric battery was discovered in a rock carbon dated approximately 500,000 years ago.

15th Century

No description available.

Renaissance illustration of a UFO sighting in Rome detailed
in a book by Roman historian Julio Obsequens.

This picture shows a UFO sighting over Hamburg, Germany
The objects were described as 'two glowing wheels' -
November 4, 1697 - Wheels - Spoked Wheels.

UFO's in Religious Art

In this painting found on a wood drawer from furniture kept at the Earls D'Oltremond, in Belgium, Moses is depicted receiving the tablets of the Ten Commandments, with "flaming horns." Several equally flaming objects are in the sky before him. The date and artist are unknown.

"The Baptism of Christ"
A disk shaped object is shining beams of light down on John the Baptist and Jesus - Fitzwilliam Musuem, Cambridge, England - Painted in 1710 by Flemish artist Aert De Gelder. It depicts a classic, hovering, silvery, saucer shaped UFO shining beams of light down on John the Baptist and Jesus. What could have inspired the artist to combine these two subjects?

17th century fresco of the crucifiction - Svetishoveli Cathedral in Mtskheta, Georgia.
Note the two saucer shaped craft on either side of Christ.

"La Tebaide"
Painted by Paolo Uccello - circa 1460-1465.

The picture on the top shows a red saucer shaped UFO seen near Jesus.
The painting hangs in the Academy of Florence.

Frescos throughout Europe which reveal the appearance of space ships in the skies including this painting of 'The Crucifixion' - painted in 1350. It seems to depict a small human looking man looking over his shoulder - at another UFO as if in pursuit - as he flies across the sky in what is clearly a space ship. The leading craft is decorated with two twinkling stars, one reminiscent of national insignia on modern aircraft. This paintng hangs above the altar at the Visoki Decani Monestary in Kosovo, Yugoslavia.

"Glorification of the Eucharist" was painted by Bonaventura Salimbeni in 1600. Today it hangs in the church of San Lorenzo in San Pietro, Montalcino, Italy. Does the 'Sputnik satellite-like device' represent the Earth?

A fourteenth century fresco of the Madonna and Child depict on the top right side the image of a UFO hovering in the distance. A blow up of this fresco reveals tremendous details about this UFO including port holes. It seems to indicate a religious involvement between UFO's and the appearance of the Christ Child. This painting is called "The Madonna with Saint Giovannino". It was painted in the 15th century by Domenico Ghirlandaio (1449-1494) and hangs as part of the Loeser collection in the Palazzo Vecchio. Above Mary's right shoulder is a disk shaped object. Below is a blow up of this section and a man and his dog can clearly be seen looking up at the object.

Painted circa 1490 by an unknown artist. Saucer shaped "clouds" intrigue modern ufologists. Could so many have appeared in the sky at one time? Or, are the hat shaped UFOs depicted so numerous here to -punctuate- certain events as being particularly holy?

Thanks for compiling this list Ciphor. Good job..

Some of this ancient artwork might have more conventional explanations than aliens/ufos.

For instance, in this image we see a flaming object falling to earth... most likely a meteor.

However, some of those images are unmistakably similar to the modern phenomenon.

The Life Of Mary - 14th Century Tapestries


'The Magnificent' - Notre-Dame in Beaune, Burgandy

The painting above was done by Carlo Crivelli (1430-1495) and is called "The Annunciation with Saint Emidius" (1486) and hangs in the National Gallery, London. A disk shaped object is shining a pencil beam of light down into Mary's crown chakra. A blow up of the object is next to the painting.

The picture above depicts Jesus and Mary on what appear to be lenticular clouds. The painting is entitled "The Miracle of the Snow" and was painted by Masolino Da Panicale (1383-1440) and hangs at the church of Santa Maria Maggiore, Florence, Italy.

Don't thank me

Most the work can be contributed to this site --> . Was just posting on here to find out if any of these images have been debunked and proven to be internet hoax's.

Ciphor,good work on the list.
I've found this old link from a French website which seems to offer plausible explanations for some of the Rennaisance images:
Although I do realise some of the paintings are open to subjective interpretation,there still exists a great many images that remain very strange indeed-this wall mural on a church wall in Yugoslavia being one of them:
Cheers Karl
PS I think I remember reading somewhere that the Lolladoff plate image has been exposed as a hoax.

Excellent link!! Thank you! Answered questions about a lot of the images. Now about those older sculptures and wall paintings

If everyone took the time to look at all that documented visual proof, they wouldn't question whether UFOs are real or not, and as a humanity we would simply be looking to find out what they are...

Fascinating and informative! Great job, & thanx for compiling.

Very good post. Thanks.

It's amazing to think that people from hundreds of thousands of years ago conspiritise the same things as we do. Its an eye-opener as to how long ET's have actually been visiting our planet (or so we think).

Thank you for posting all the links. The History Channel has done programs about UFOs throughout history. They have been visiting this planet for possibly millions of years.

That is the problem with people who analyse paintings without knowing what they are looking at.

Paintings (at least for the last five centuries), and specially religious paintings, have some rules to help people understand what was depicted, and people that do not know that make assumptions based on their ignorance of that fact.

Anyone that has studied art history can explain it, no UFOs needed.

As for the more ancient paintings and drawings, assuming they represent UFOs and aliens is just considering that the people who created them did it as if they were representing what they saw, exactly like they saw it, but if they were representing their dreams or illustrating a story? There is really no way of knowing it.
