10,000-year-old rock paintings depicting aliens and UFOs found in Chhattisgarh[India]
Times of India ^ | 15 July 2014 | Rashmi Drolia

Chhattisgarh state department of archaeology and culture plans to seek help from Nasa and Isro for research on 10,000-year-old rock paintings depicting aliens and UFOs in Charama region in Kanker district in tribal Bastar region.

According to archaeologist JR Bhagat, these paintings have depicted aliens like those shown in Hollywood and Bollywood flicks. Located about 130km from Raipur, the caves come under village Chandeli and Gotitola.

"The findings suggest that humans in prehistoric times may have seen or imagined beings from other planets which still create curiosity among people and researchers. Extensive research is needed for further findings. Chhattisgarh presently doesn't have any such expert who could give clarity on the subject," Bhagat told TOI.

There are several beliefs among locals in these villages. While few worship the paintings, others narrate stories they have heard from ancestors about "rohela people" — the small sized ones — who used to land from sky in a round shaped flying object and take away one or two persons of village who never returned.

"The paintings are done in natural colours that have hardly faded despite the years. The strangely carved figures are seen holding weapon-like objects and do not have clear features. Specially, the nose and mouth are missing. In few pictures, they are even shown wearing space suits. We can't refute possibility of imagination by prehistoric men but humans usually fancy such things," the archaeologist said.

He added that it is a co-incidence that such ancient images appear to have sharp resemblance to UFOs shown in alien movies. "The fan-like antenna and three legs of vehicle's stand clearly show a similarity to UFO type craft," he said.

Other archaeologists would also be consulted for further verification.

anything on earth from a long time ago merely resembling how modern people imagine beings from other planets may look can be interpreted as being depictions of such beings even though many local factors and local abilities and local religious beliefs at the time of the paintings could have produced that resemblence while having nothing to do with physical beings from other worlds at all

modern people should not read too much into such images

their opinions about them may be more their own imginations than anything else

"clearly show a similarity to UFO type craft"

Which basically means it could be anything. How do they know what a UFO looks like?

At least the last one I saw...right.

Nope, not possible for humans 10,000 years ago to imagine what is depicted. They might have made up reasons for the things they saw/experienced, but the pictograms illustrate technology, not magic.

Uh...Just a wild guess, but maybe they saw something and then painted it, which today appears to be possibly resemble some type of spacecraft.

It certainly does not appear to be a buffalo or lizard.

Does a round thing with 3 legs necessarily have to be a UFO? What about a table instead? Which is easier to believe? But of course, if a person wants to believe a certain conclusion, the evidence will change to fit that conclusion.

"Chhattisgarh state department of archaeology and culture plans to seek help from Nasa and Isro for research on 10,000-year-old rock paintings depicting aliens and UFOs in Charama region in Kanker district in tribal Bastar region."

It is absurd to make such a positive identification as to the meaning of these ambiguous paintings. The first looks like a group of people standing around, the third looks like a shaman in his regalia, and the middle one could be anything from an insect to a cauldron on a tripod to any one of a number of other things.

That's probably it, they decided to paint their 3 legged cave table on the wall as decoration.

Fra Angelico..."Coronation of the Virgin"







In this painting by Fra Angelico, we see an obvious reference to ALIENS! Look! they are all wearing space helmets! And the People in the center are obviously on some kind of jet-propelled space platform! The Golden rays emanating from the space platform indicate a possible nuclear fusion power source! And check out those Gold, trumpet-like space weapons in the background! I'm not saying it's aliens, but....

There is a place in SE New Mexico, near Carrizozo, called Three Rivers Petroglyph.

I visited the place in the mid-sixties. We were walking thru the field of rocks...and, due to the glare from a low Western sun, couldn't distinguish the petroglyphs at all.

I sat down in the shadow of one rock and focused on the sunlit rock face opposite me. And, suddenly, the glyphs became clearly evident -- it was a matter of mentally separating the white lines from the cracks and stratification of the rocks.

And, on the rock face opposite, I was treated to the clear image of a Viking ship! In profile, with the high horsehead prow and the elevated stern, above a large rudder. A large square sail set amidship. A row of eight round "shields" mounted on the side, at the gunwales. Eight oars projecting from the side of the ship.

I called my wife's attention to the image...and she was equally shocked by what she was seeing. An accurate image of a Viking longboat...in the middle of the New Mexico desert, above the White Sands.

I ran off to alert the park ranger -- as there had been no mention of this particular image at the site's entrance or in the literature.

She, however, seemed unaware of the significance...and showed no interest in the image's location.

I've always wondered if anybody else has ever seen that image revealed by a low western light...

Yup...try drawing this person:

Pagan tribes had all sorts of weird piercings and tatoos all through history (btw these are symptoms of a devolving culture). They would look weird enough in a drawing but no spacemen.

that part looks faked or added later. doesn’t even fit the character of the other art. who says these aren’t demons. there is a reason all these ancient people worshipped ugly and vengeful gods. maybe they saw them.
