much crap on here which never really shows hard evidence unlike the videos and photos of ufos im sceptical with this one coz he didnt notice till
after he took the photo but people arnt stupid i think they can tell the difference between a bird, a lantern and a ufo...has anybody seen the
painting of madonna and child by Domenico Ghirlandaio from the 15th century?
Yes i have seen the ufo in the background of the paintings. Its been said that they are fake, and were added in after. They are interesting though.
Lichter daraus, that's NOT an hoax, you will see what is it.
jess0, I guess that you are referring to this painting
and to the ufo
that i've outlined.
I'm glad that you've discovered its author:
as far as i knew, there are multiple attributions, no one of them conclusive: i don't think it's
some Ghirlandaio's work, though. And yes, i've seen it, LIVE.
According to the caption in the museum
and some other sources, its author would be Jacopo del Sellaio
, mentioned by Vasari as apprentice with Filippo Lippi
, who has been, basically, the artistic
precursor of Botticelli:
but according to other sources, including its own file, it's a work made by Sebastiano
see also www.artnet.com...
now, this guy worked in Domenico Ghirlandaio
's workshop, (he was his brother-in-law,
it's needless to say who influenced whom.
This has to be why this painting is often mistakenly attributed to Ghirlandaio whom, by the way, was author of works of WAY higher caliber (just with
no alleged ufos in).
Now, let's talk about the "ufo" (1), about its observer (2), and about a third detail (3)
apparently not relevant to the "ufo sighting".
The painting does NOT depict some woman with some child whatsoever, you know? I'd say it's supposed to depict the Nativity: we can see the Virgin
Mary, the Angel, we have even the ox and the donkey: the guy that is looking at the "ufo", represents the annunciation to the shephards: google
Gospel of Luke for more informations:
An angel of the Lord appeared to them (the shephards) and the glory of the Lord shone around them. They were terrified, but the angel said unto
them, to don't fear.
The same scene, has been depicted in some almost identical ways, more than once:
There are more examples: let's say that the artist did not take care about the details, which is the real only odd thing about this painting, given
the skills of his author regardless who he was.
The three "stars" or "flares" or whatever you want to call them (3) falling from the cloudy sun (plenty of ufos in that painting) indicate a stron
influence of Girolamo Savonarola
What you are looking at, in the mean of the artist, is an ANGEL, believe it or not.

Sorry for the off topic, but it was some italian artist
Ah: what we see in the OP can really be a bird, but it could also be anything else: what has been caught on camera is a white DOT, a couple of pixels
The Sun knows that should share the original, but he prefers sensationalism: it's their confirmed strategy: i guess that ATS general consensus is
that a pic showing a dot and NOT containing any exif data can be put to rest.
