I've seen other pictures of these entities in cave drawings, exactly the same. Awesome painting!

Wandjinas are in fact aboriginal spirits of the earth. These paintings are situated in the Kimberly in Barradja country. The Barradja are an aboriginal mob who believe that the wandjinas created the earth by simply walking and letting it form with each step. Then when they finished creation they simply magicked themselves into the rock where these paintings are.

If you look at the top, you can see a tiny one with two tiny stick things in its head. It looks like a little alien! ^-^

I'm Part Aboriginal, And They Don't Look Much Like It. Aboriginal Paintings Were Alot More Straight Forward, Telling A Story. The "Animal" In The Bottom Looks Like An Armodillo - And I Don't Think I've Seen Any Armodillo's Around Lately, I'll Post It If I Do Though. So, There Fore - It's Not Aboriginal.

That's not aboriginal artwork. The big "thing" in the bottom center of the page, it's not any kind of aboriginal artwork I've seen. It hasn't got any of the organs/bones drawn in (as they do). It may be a rock painting, but I would seriously doubt it's authenticity as an "Ancient aboriginal artpiece"

They're so vague that you'll see what you want to see. Ancient astronauts? Quite a deduction from just a head two eyes and a mouth. (rollseyes)

You're right about the aboriginal part, kthxbye and goddess77, and the large animal at the bottom i think is a wombat, the smaller one CryptoRay, isnt a giant mouse, but most likely a wallaby, or pottaroo. The Wandjinas are painted on rock walls in the Kimberley (Northern Territory) often near caves. The local Aboriginal people would call on the Wandjinas for an increase in bush tucker or children.

One of the 'aliens' is getting attacked by a giant mouse.

I agree with you Viracocha! Are these cave paintings??

Ancient astronauts, you also see animals given to them, perhaps sacrifices, the ones with the red crown like things on their head are probably the leaders or the ones in control of the others. They look like some type of grey aliens, with the large oval eyes. Very interesting to see.

I'm pretty sure Wandjinas are Aboriginal weather spirits. Supposedly they'd come out from the mountains to change the weather. I don't know that much about them, sorry.
