Wildlife Conservation Society biologists have discovered cave paintings that are allegedly 4,000-10,000 years old in the Taboco region of the
southwestern Brazilian state of Mato Grosso do Sul.

The discovery was made in 2009 and is just now making the rounds in the media. As I understand it, publishing academic/scientific papers sometimes
takes a while. Is four years normal? You tell me.
The discovery was made in 2009, when Dr Alexine Keuroghlian of the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Brazil Program and her colleagues were
conducting surveys of white-lipped peccaries, herd-forming pig-like animals that travel long distances and are environmental indicators of healthy
Dr Rodrigo Luis Simas de Aguiar, an archaeologist with the Federal University of Grande Dourados, determined that the Taboco cave paintings
were made between 4,000 – 10,000 years ago by hunter-gatherer societies that either occupied the caves, or used them specifically for their artistic
activities. The paintings are described in a paper published in the journal Revista Clio Arqueológica (full paper).
Geological dating has yet to be done, so Dr Rodrigo Luis Simas de Aquiar must be speculating.
The scientists hope to conduct cave floor excavations and geological dating at the sites in order to fully interpret the
Here's a few images of a painting depicting an interaction between one of the "anthropomorphs" and other humanoids:

Certainly "human-like", but notice the unusual head shape. The figure on the far right appears to be a human, following another smaller being. I'm
going out on a limb here, but could this be a prehistoric account of alien interaction? It looks like there's what could be interpreted as a focused
beam of light shining down on a man to the far left of the painting.
Depictions of other anthropomorph beings found around the site:
Paintings of cat and prey or of monkeys?

Depictions of animals among what could be interpreted as stars and the sun.
Depictions of spirals, perhaps galaxies.
Of course, the paintings have been damaged by time or vandalism, and a lot of the details are altered as a result. However, the basic details are
still there. Do you think this discovery lends credibility to the theories about man's prehistoric relations with intelligent beings from other
worlds? What do you think?
