Many ancient wall paintings are said to show flying objects and visitors from outer space. But these images also appear in classic, commissioned pieces of art—particularly those that depict divine events. Is there a genuine connection between the divine and alien activity? According to a cadre of believers, these 10 classic pieces of artwork clearly show UFOs.
10.The Annunciation With Saint Emidus 1486
The Annunciation with Saint Emidus, which was painted in 1486 by Italian artist Carlo Crivelli, shows the Virgin Mary shortly before she realizes that she will give birth to Jesus the saviour.
A beam of light coming from a round opening in the sky to Mary’s head is said by most mainstream art critics and historians to be the halo of the Lord projecting down to Mary.
9.The Crucifixion Of Christ (Republic Of Kosovo) 1350
The Crucifixion of Christ, which hangs above the altar of the Visoki Decani Monastery in Kosovo, depicts the crucifixion of Jesus Christ with a clear airborne craft in each corner of the painting.
Even stranger, a person appears to be piloting each aircraft. The pilot in the top right corner is looking back at the craft behind him—as if he is being pursued. Both pilots seem to be dressed in space suits. The lack of halos near them appears to rule out the possibility that they are divine beings.
8.The Baptism Of Christ 1710
The Baptism of Christ, which was painted by Dutch artist Aert de Gelde in 1710, shows a disc-shaped object shining several beams of light toward the baptismal scene below.
Gelde was a keen student of Rembrandt. Some believe that this would have given the Dutch artist access to the Vatican’s art archives and their “secret knowledge.” As a result, many people believe that Gelde’s paintings, especially this one, are cleverly conveying that secret knowledge to the public.
7.The Madonna With Saint Giovannino Late 1400s
In the painting The Madonna with Saint Giovannino, a flying craft is above and behind the left shoulder of the Madonna. A man is staring up at the craft. His dog appears to be barking at it, which suggests that the object isn’t divine.
Rays of light appear around the craft. The position of the Madonna in relation to her children has led some to suggest that she is shielding them from the craft. Her halo also appears to be darker and fainter in this particular picture. Could that be related to the object in the sky behind her? Did it have a diminutive effect?
6.Triumph Of Summer Tapestry 1538
The Triumph of Summer tapestry, which was created in Bruges, Belgium, in 1538, shows several objects that look like modern UFOs. In the top left of the tapestry, several saucer-shaped objects appear to have raised sections in them—almost as if they were cockpits.
As there are no known religious symbols that look like this, it has to be assumed that these objects do not symbolize something divine. The piece is supposed to depict a ruler’s ascent to power, so it is difficult to see the connection between this scene and the strange craft.
