A number of unusual cave paintings dating back 10,000 years have been discovered in Chhattisgarh.
The rock paintings, which were found on the walls of caves underneath the villages of Chandeli and Gotitola in India, appear to depict strange figures wearing spacesuits and objects in the sky that resemble traditional depictions of UFOs in modern culture.

According to the local villagers there are legends in the region about the "rohela people", small beings who came down from the heavens in round ships and took people away.

"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," said archaeologist JR Bhagat.

"Extensive research is needed for further findings. Chhattisgarh presently doesn't have any such expert who could give clarity on the subject."

Detailed photographs of the paintings can be viewed - here.

This is a very interesting article. I've just seen the images but not read the article itself yet, but looks like paintings from possible encounters?

People watch Keeping Up with the Kardassians, and think that Wrestling is real, you do the "math".

To be fair there is a math that does work,but,it is,not of this world.It was given in a metaphysical language that has not been spoken since Osiris last spew his seed on the earth after blowing his load building the pyramids. . jmccr8

Just because people can make an assumption that aliens do in fact exist somewhere in this vast universe of ours, even if this is true it does not validate claims of ET visitation on our little blue speck. Our current definition of physics would make it highly improbable for a means of travel that exists that would support ET visitation, beyond that lack of evidence for ET visitation or any ET life in general invalidates any claims of knowledge otherwise. In other words, proof or it didn't happen.

There is also a vast gulf between "Here's some rock paintings" and "It's either aliens, or it's ALL MADE UP!!!" Come to think of it, it's a damn vast gulf between "It's aliens" and,"It's ALL MADE UP!!!" A double gulf with an "and" in the middle. IMO, the truth lies in that second gulf. Harte

The paintings are too bright for 10,000 year old paintings and look like a recent art work. It is a pretty bad hoax.

as I said, it's entirely possibly they're part of a "living history" like the Indigenous people of Australia have, where it's one of the sacred duties of the Elders to maintain the artwork - and there's art here that's older then that found in India that looks as good as new because of that sacred duty.

And Sir ought to know. He has hats older than those paintings. Harte

My students are astounded that my hat (a battered, stained and actively holey Akubra) is older then them. My leather satchel (whose days are numbered) is actually older then many of them put together.
