I'll present here what i consider the best evidence for alien visitation, certainly in terms of possible representation of. This will involve
comparison between Dogu figures of Jomon culture of Japan, dating from around 1500-1000 BC, and those of Vinca culture of the Southern Ukraine, from
around 5500-4000 BC. given the huge disparity in time and place there really shouldn't be any apart from the general
So above we see a box of lovely little classic Jomon figurines and one might imagine consideration of these has been done to death, but not so,
generally only the most elaborate are considered which actually interest me the least, in that i would consider such elaboration and decoration
according to Oriental tastes, examples i present here are far less well known.
In all examples presented here a Jomon figure is seen to the left a Vinca figurine to the right by way of comparison.
Above then we see what to my mind are astonishing representations for these periods, in terms of costume, and there is remarkable similarity seen
between the two cultures. Both figures appear as wearing tight fitting costume with incised patterns represented, heavy boots, forward sloping
protective helmets/masks, shoulder, knee and elbow padding upon the design and gauntlets...none of which makes any sense for the periods involved, a
repeated anomaly across millenia.
When looking at Vinca figurines previously i had noted a strangely curious positioning and representation of the arm, i had not seen similar
elsewhere, it seemed un-natural yet carefully presented, obviously signifying or representing something, i was amazed to see the same interest in the
One finds there is more stylistic variation in Jomon figures than the Vinca, suggesting they were made over a longer period and more extensive area,
with greater variability in the skill of the artisans and familiarity with what they were supposed to be representing, but all the elements of the
Vinca figurines can be found within the tradition.
The red and black diagonal banding which is almost always seen on the Vinca figurines costume is seldom seen on the Jomon , again the greater
variation in the latter, but it is present in some examples, but the motif is of a very unusual and striking nature and was perhaps not easy to relate
to by the artisans, given it has more in common with a cool design for motor cycle leathers.
Suggested explanations for the Jomon figurines are somewhat vague and lame, that perhaps in some way they granted good health or fortune, perhaps they
wear snow goggles/masks like the Innuit, for the Vinca figurines nobody seems to really bother trying...
But as they share common characteristics i would suggest they require a common explanation, for the forward sloping helmet with the artificial
protective eye pieces, pronounced nose guard, entirely unattested in the archaeological record costume and accessories, these cannot be
anthropomorphic figurines as critters don't wear such either.
I have considered previously that the classic archetypal example for an alien is perhaps rather based upon the features of the helmet rather than the
actual wearer, the bulging dark black eyes, curiously shaped and proportioned head, so perhaps we should now consider what lay beneath the mask...
In this regard our glorious ancestors have actually been quite helpful, in that their natural curiousity seems to have got the better of them and they
have represented such, at least with the female of the species.
What is seen beneath mask when it is raised could perhaps be best described as reptilian or amphibian features, the latter having some attestation in
ancient texts as far as suggested visitations from the Pleiades goes, the body though seems quite humanoid, though the arms seem somewhat irregular
again, or perhaps lazy artists not bothering to add hands.
These female figurines do seem to have some association with sexuality, fertility, reproduction, not unsurprisingly of course, and there was the
example seen with the young offspring in the earlier example, it should also be considered there is never any threatening aspect to these figurines
either, apart from the fact they wear masks and are probably extra-terrestial...
So there we are then, my presentation of what remains for me a curious enigma, what i consider the best evidence, hope you enjoyed it it, i'll leave
you with a cute little alien Lady with a heart shaped face...oh and her scary sister.
