I can't see any correlation between the Dover Demon in Bartlett's drawing and the Nazca Lines image. They are both roughly humanoid but that's as far as the similarities go, there's also no reason to assume that Bartlett's drawing represents the existence of a real creature.

that's what i meant as well. I'm pretty sure that if you just dig deep enough into ancient cave drawings, you can find Spongebob Squarepants...

You're not familiar with the early drawings from Victorian explorers who depicted giraffes and rhinos and kangaroos etc that were thought impossible by the lay audience of the time. There's a first time for everything.

I am very well familiar with illustrations of that sort, i studied art for some time. Take for example Albrecht Dürers famous Rhino drawing that he created only from what he was told about this animal, he never saw one. But that's not the point here.

You can't just link two vaguely (!) resembling illustrations and link one to the other. Wait: You can! But it doesn't make sense.

I'd like to refer you to post#5.

Thanks,  but no.  It is too contrived and I've already lost interest.  Good luck.

Okay, okay, it's a tenuous connection, I agree but still better than an 'astronaut' imv. The circumstantial evidence remains however due to the fact that all the other Nazca images are special animals of wonder. I did a quick search and found a UK Dover demon-like encounter:

Quote

Location. Goodhurst Kent England
Date: 1955
Time: 0330A
The witness was staying at the local village school and was sleeping in one of the rooms by herself. She suddenly awoke feeling a terrible coldness in the room. She then saw a strange figure crouching to the left of her bed. It was small and had two large staring eyes and appeared to be encased in a soft glow. It stared at the witness with an obscene and malevolent gaze. Eventually the room became warmer and the creature disappeared.

The object, known by the locals as "Bicho Voador" (Flying Animal), or "Bicho Sugador" (Sucking Animal), has the shape of a rounded ship and attacks people in isolation.

Have we considered that the drawings are of some everyday objects, and teh guys in the poorly lit caves using their fingers to smear stuff on walls, might've just been crappy artists?

I've seen **** that'll turn you WHITE!

First off, you're jumping geographically a lot. Why would something like that go from Peru to Dover, and where was it hidding for the 1500 years in between?

Second, I don't understand how you always manage to combine the randomest cryptids, just because they're both humanoid DOES NOT mean they're the same. Not that they even look similar in the pictures to me. Dover demon has a distinctly dffferent head shape that all witnessess point out. You could just as well say the dover demon was a human as you could that it's the same thing depicted in the nazca lines.

This thread is just rediculous to me, as well as every other thread by the infamous smugfish.

It's only a representation of course. Not many people would have seen the Dover demon compared to seeing monkeys, spiders, dogs, hummingbirds etc. The dog image only has three front toes and an extra leg cocked as if peeing against a tree etc. The humanoid is standing with two arms, perhaps one waving? The Dover demon is renowned for staring at people who see it and then slowly moving away. Calling the humanoid a Dover demon makes more sense than calling it the "astronaut" imo. Why call it that? It's a bit out of place now that the X-files mania has died down.

Here's a sighting of the Dover demon in a standing stance

Eh, you do know that these aren't photographs, and just someone's second-hand interpretation of what someone else reportedly saw, right?

The Dover Demon hasn't got ears or a tail.
The giant monkey has these, plus an oddity, five fingers on one hand but four fingers on the other hand.
