Sartorial elegance of 'The Grays'...

I think the record needs setting straight regarding the dress sense of the archetypal imagery that has formed the basis for the modern mythos of 'the grays'

The problem probably lies in the earliest photographic images of the idols that fueled the subconcious projection of these archetypes, these were generally of poor quality and in black and white in Von Danikenesque publications of the 60's, the result being the blurrily percieved nightmarish bug eyed naked monochromes.


The best source for these early conjectures was Vinca culture, 7,000 years old, you've all seen this one;







but lets have a look at a whole lot more, noting that they wear refined costume, which extends above the shoulders to cover the head, the features of which are in fact those of a helmet.









These get called 'masks', though they aren't because you can't see through them, they're representations of helmets














Another issue is the genderless nature of 'the grays', this also is a misconception, some of the archetypal idols are female, and good mothers...


















The lack of quality and diverse photographic reproductions in forming this modern mythos has therefore lead to the shambolic monochromes, uniform in gender, nakedness and size, this is unfortunate as abductees have missed out on the subconcious projection of well dressed aliens in cool helmets with female atendees and nurturing mother types along with cute little alien rascals...






Hopefully i can redress the balance a little and enhance the abduction experiance for some...



Here's a question people like might like to consider, if people were representing their 'Gods' some 7000 years ago with these idols, it would seem likely they would have represented them in their best finery, however these idols are clearly wearing tight fitting, entire body covering, suits, with a cool geometric design...is that what people wore then?



Has anyone ever seen an attempt to illustrate these one piece body covering costumes, with the correct design, knee and arm pads, inbuilt helemet etc...???...if not why not.

Those look like cat faces.

Those aren't natural features, those are within the helmet. The mouth is never seen, the reason being;


A....they didn't have mouths....(a now unsurprisingly extinct species of cat)


B....they didn't wish to breathe directly through their helmets.

There is also unfortunately;


D...they were birds.


The pronounced nose guard and absence of mouth led to a whole host of bird Goddess type figurines in the Indus valley and elsewhere, almost as crazy as our golem like greys.

The most reliable artists were the Vinca, with the Jomon not too far behind

I find it intriguing that out of all the possible wonders that befalls man, this image is persistent.

The spacesuits clothing depicted is not unique in ancient sculptures but, in this particular instance, remains to be seen for what it actually represents.

What I want to believe vs the available evidence, is my personal conundrum.

Ive never seen these things before. And this thread has some interesting thories

I'd say the costumery seen on the Vinca figurines is unique, and importantly they are consistent, there is much drift of these figurine types into the Near East with bird and bee type anthropomorphism, people trying to make sense of iconography and creating nonsense...


The padding on the upper arms, on the knees and the coverall geometric suit, helmet with pronounced nose guard etc show great attention to accurate representation.

Generally only the first image i posted does the rounds as the archetypal grey, but as seen there is much more which creates a far more intriguing model.

Here I am clutching at straws again and discussing things with you - who is far more knowledgeable than I in such matters.

As does the size of the cranium in each.

What are we seeing here?

We are seeing either 'Power Rangers' or aliens...that much is certain.

What if... this is just some for of avant-garde, surrealist art? Imagine Earthlings of the distant future forming their impression of ancient times based on some paintings of S. Dali which they dug up and accepted as documents of real events. Just saying...

Negative on that, people took their Gods seriously in the Neolithic period and with good reason.

I wonder if 'dwarves' are a manifestation of the same archetype. The chthonic spirit, the 'machine elves' of Terence McKenna, etc.

My personal opinion is these artists just are "bad" to try represent humans... If you ever had an art class in school you will remember that most people just "bad" in the art department, just few can make a good realist reproduction.

If you ask to everybody here in this forum to draw a picture of face using a pen.. you got the idea

Yes metaphysical conjecture based upon an axis commencing with a Y co-ordinate horizontal premise of absolute darkness through an x co-ordinate vertical into ever increasing light is hard wired into us, in plain mythological English that means that the little ones will be below ground and can be as broad in the shoulders as they wish, whilst those who aspire to the Heavenly realms will be tall and fair...progression from the lowest to the highest is ever positive and the dwarves though lowly are good...evil is regression.


The modern grays manifest on a similar scale, in that they are midpoint between our deepest darkest primeval fears of the nocturnal demonic and shadowy, the terror of non-being, yet also take advantage of every scientific development and manifestation of light and logic...goblins with the latest high-tech.

I think the artwork is good, in my minds eye i can picture exactly what they were representing, all singing and all dancing.

Greys are a load of crap.

-Never have i heard of a grey with a nose... specially a HUGE BLOODY SHNOZ like in your pics.
-Greys have always been described as slim big head tiny body and long finger beings... Ever thought how something that demented looking can build a spacecraft?
-fair enough they can overpower a human with their minds but they cant tighten a freaking bolt...or open a door.

greys are a joke... if there are some sort of beings out there then my guess is that they would resemble a smarter dinosaur that didn't get wiped out thus had the time to evolve... OR is another human race... SIMPLE.

Read what i've wrote in the thread and you'll find i agree with you, apart from the dinosaur bit...

Why no dino bit?
its logical isn't it? they were around first and they would of evolved just as we did... but they had the advantage of being here alot longer then us =D its the only reason i can stand hearing about "reptilians" because i believe that is probably the closest thing you'll get to a logical idea for an alien.

haha greys =D natures anal probe LOL.

I don't think any of these really look like Greys but I have seen a lot of old artifacts/hieroglyphs that do have a chilling resemblance.

Has it occured to anyone...

that these ancient exaggerated human forms are just their meme faces?

I can imagine ancient man putting a clay tablet with some text and then one these guys beside it.

Think about it.

It make sense.
