ufo and extraterrestrial art



Throughout mankind’s history, UFOs have been depicted by many different individuals, over thousands of years, and on many different continents.

They all felt compelled to document alien visitation, and in remarkably similar forms. Mere coincidence?

This is a very small sample of extraterrestrial “visitors”, depicted by artists of different time periods, from around the world.

Entitled "The Miracle of the Snow", this painting from 1388-1440, by Masolino Da Panicale, currently resides at the church of Santa Maria Maggiore, in Florence, Italy. It shows two 'humans' in a circle type cloud, hovering above the disciples. This could easily be interpreted spiritually, or, something more extraterrestrial, like them looking down from a hovering UFO.

"La Tebaide

This tapestry from 1538, named Summer's Triumph, hangs in the Bayerisches National Museum. If you look at the top corners, you can see what could be described as flying saucers, or UFOs.

The Annunciation

In this stunning painting, called "The Annunciation", from 1486 by the hands of Carlo Crivelli, you see an amazing image of a UFO beaming down light toward a building, and through a window. A stream of light from God, or a message from somewhere beyond the heavens?

"The Baptism of Christ" was painted in 1710, by Aert De Gelder. This is one the finest UFO and alien depictions in ancient art. A ufo shines light on Christ, as John baptizes him. It could be interpreted as a divine being, but its uncanny resemblance to common UFO descriptions, leaves little doubt about what it was meant to be.

This UFO painting is from 1803. There was a book written about it, Ume No Chiri, that said a "foreign ship and crew" was spotted on the shore of Haratonohama, Hitachi, Japan. The UFO was made of metal and glass, and had strange writings on it. This is the artist's rendition of the flying saucer, or space ship.

At 9:45, on the evening of August 17th, 1783, four people on the terrace of Windsor Castle witnessed a strange object in the sky. It seemed to be running horizontal with the horizon, and to be of disk form. Under it, appeared a strange orb that shot off to the east, and then to the southwest, illuminating the whole ground underneath it with a magnificent light. This is a sketch of what was seen that night, by Thomas and Paul Sandby, two of the people who experienced the sighting.
