In a few thousand years imagine the previous painting being found.
Does it's existence then indicate unicorns existed during our age and natives of the area painted it as they saw it?
Well, then you might say " How could it look so much like a modern day image of an alien". A valid question, but not really all that hard to come up
with an answer to. Archetypes.
Throughout all cultures in all times certain themes and images reoccur, time and again. I am willing to bet that the image in your OP is indicative of
one such archetype. What it really represents, who knows?
But don't fall into the trap of thinking that because it is familiar as something we know, that it immediately means it is that...
Imagination is not exclusive to our times.
This is not to say anything for or against alien visitation in the past or present to our planet. Just to clarify.
