10,000 year old cave paintings depict aliens and UFOs
Ancient cave paintings depicting alien life have been discovered on rocks in India. The local archaeology department has turned to NASA for answers.
Chhattisgarh State archaeologist JR Bhagat told The Times Of India (TOI), “The findings suggest that humans in prehistoric times may have seen or imagined beings from other planets which will create curiosity among people and researchers”.
The drawings, showing slender figures and spacecraft-like symbols, were found in the Bastar region. The district is home to a strong tribal heritage, with approximately 70 percent being tribesmen and tribeswomen. The locals are known for their love of folklore, arts and crafts.
Plants and rocks were used as paints and carving tools in order to create the etchings.
Bastar tribal paintings often depicted religious themes; however this is an example of a Ghotul painting, illustrating more perceptive, imaginative symbols that may have a hidden meaning.
“The strangely carved figures are seen holding weapon-like objects and do not have clear features… In a few pictures, they are even shown wearing space suits”, Bhaghat said.
It has long been speculated that cave paintings depict space symbols and extraterrestrial entities, as enthusiasts claim that aliens definitely had a prehistoric presence and that Earth has been visited way before our time. Another example of this is the 50,000 year old Wandjina cave paintings in Australia. The Aboriginal art depicts mysterious alien-like faces with large eyes.
“We can’t refute possibility of imagination by prehistoric men but humans usually fancy such things”, Bhagat added.
Yet this discovery comes after American astronomer Dr. Seth Shostak from the SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Institute told Congress at a hearing, “I don’t think there’s any good evidence that convinces me that we were visited in historic times”.
But the Chhattisgarh state department of archaeology still wants answers, turning to NASA and ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation) to help them find answers.
“Chhattisgarh presently doesn’t have any such expert who could give clarity on the subject”, Bhagat explains.
“Extensive research is needed for further findings”.
