I think some of them quite clearly are renditions of flying machines. It is the only logical conclusion. All that that is left to debate about them would be whether they were machines actually seen or whether they were the Sci-fi imaginings of the artist. I think they were seen, but then I am not an expert on literature of the period. If there were any evidence of Sci-fi in their literature, I would be open to swing the other way.

It's obvious what these artists are telling us in these paintings, that the ufo reality did not start during the 21st century but through out earths history .There has bin alot of evidence to this all over the world, nothing new to the experts of ufology.

Strange flying objects depicted in ancient works of art raise disturbing questions about our history and the role of man in the Universe. This argument might be better made were you to include ancient artwork. The art depicted in the article is well known, relatively modern and well understood, regardless of what the writer of that article is trying to imply. The fact that you and I might not be all that well-versed in the esoterics of art history doesn't mean that the art that we don't understand is not understood by other, more educated, people that do possess this art history knowledge.

Very interesting! Makes me wonder if the drawings were just an artistic form of something celestial, like stars or comets, or if they were actually something more.. ??? It just doesn't make sense to have something odd like that in a rendering of something that is drawn to look more realistic than abstract.

i would have to go with the trained art historians on this one . it's unlikely that depictions in the arts are UFO's . i remember seeing a professor in mexico that was translating some carvings i can't remember if they were aztec , or inca. but some of them looked like people flying on jets-rockets or ufo's . they even had their hands in the places where the joysticks and throttles would likely be. but in her translation the placement of the hand's was communicating the status of the great chieftain . can't seem to recall the whole story . it was on PBS years ago . but she didn't see any UFO's...

If a dove is used as a symbol of peace or the divine in art, it does not mean that such a thing as a dove never existed and was never seen. What would they call a UFO in old history in which they had nothing but but falling stars, bright clouds, the sun, the moon, rainbows, and bright colored birds in the sky to compare it to as another sky object? Of course other words and terms and explanations other than UFOs and aliens were used to explain what was seen. That is common sense. So for an art historian to explain that the object is a bird or mystical heavenly design that meant something to th...
