Early Planes

At the end of the 1960s, biologist Uvan Ivan Sanderson, more well-known as a promoter of Bigfoot, called the attention of the world to some gold pre-Columbian artifacts, centuries old, produced by indigenous cultures.

According to him, those were reproductions of jet aircrafts, a conclusion supported by doctor Arthur Poyslee, of the New York Aeronautic Institute.

Absurd, if only the artifacts didn’t in fact look so much like modern airplanes.


The Madonna with St. Giovannino The Madonna with St. Giovannino

The Madonna with Saint Giovannino - above Mary's left shoulder is a shining, or glowing, disk shaped object. A man and his dog is seen looking up at the disk.

Painted in the 15th century, Palazzo Vecchio lists the artist as unknown; although it is attributed to the Lippi school.

Notice that dark, sparkling, disassembled figure beside them. Is that a demon, a dwarf, an ethereal being, or what?

The body, legs, head, and tail can be made out. Could this represent a type of alien or demon, known to the artist? Also, Mary's halo seems a bit shadowy: more like a vaporous disc than a ring of light – darker inside, smoky.

Aertdegelder painting

This painting is by flemish artist Aert De Gelder and is entitled "The Baptism of Christ". It was painted in 1710 and hangs in the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge.

A disk shaped object is shining beams of light down on John the Baptist and Jesus. This shows an awareness of UFOs by this artist in 1710.

Val Camonica, Italy

This cave painting is c.10,000 BC and is from Val Camonica, Italy. It appears to depict two beings in protective suits holding strange implements.

Notice the halo looking objects over their heads, which is very similar to other early cave drawings and paintings.

Kiev, Ukraine

This carving was found in Kiev, Ukraine. It is approx 6,000 years old (4,000 BC). Given the context of where and when it came from, it is very difficult to explain this carving as not being of something “other worldly”.

Kimberley, Australia Kimberley, Australia Kimberley, Australia

These cave paintings date back to approximately 3,000 B.C and are from Kimberley, Australia. These are more ancient paintings of what the local Aborigines call the Wandjina.

Notice how these also possess the same dominate characteristics: the eyes and the halo-type object around the heads. Most of these also possess the bulbous head which the famous “greys” are said to possess.

Easter Island Statue Easter Island Statue

Easter Island has long been the subject of curiosity and speculation. How and why did its inhabitants carve and transport the massive statues which surround the island?

What remains of this culture today, and what lessons can we learn from their legacy? The island is known by its inhabitants as "Rapa Nui" and "Isla de Pascua".

The Nazca Lines The Nazca Lines

The Nazca Lines are giant sketches drawn in the desert of western Peru by ancient peoples. The drawings were created on such a large scale is such that the shapes can be readily discerned only from the air, leading to a variety of theories about their purpose.

The Nazca Lines were created in the time of the Nazca Indians, who flourished in the area from 200 BC to about 600 AD. Graves and ruins of their civilization have been found near the lines.


Stonehenge is surely Britain's greatest national icon, symbolizing mystery, power and endurance. Its original purpose is unclear to us, but some have speculated that it was a temple made for the worship of ancient earth deities.

It has been called an astronomical observatory for marking significant events on the prehistoric calendar.

Teotihuacan, Mexico Teotihuacan, Mexico

Teotihuacan, Mexico -Though archaeologists have long been fascinated with the site, Teotihuacan's culture and history are still largely mysterious.

The civilization left massive ruins, but no trace has yet been found of a writing system and very little is known for sure about its inhabitants, who were succeeded first by the Toltecs and then by the Aztecs.
