The Tassili Paintings -- what do they really tell us?

Copyright 2012, InterAmerica, Inc.


Spanish UFO researcher Jose Caravaca has been kind enough to provide us with a slew of images from the Tassili paintings created between 4000 B.C. and 2000 B.C.

You can also Google Tassili and see many more. (There are about 15000 discovered drawings by the Neolithic tribe from the Saharan Desert region in and around Algeria.)

The paintings have received notice by painters, anthropologists, Ancient Astronaut theorists, and culturalists inside many scientific disciplines.

There is a story, a history, that one can derive from the drawings, but that story hasn’t been discerned in any significant way.

The paintings should be grist for serious examination, as they provide some kinds of seminal truths about early man and early attempts at social civilization, maybe even something about contact with the Tassili humans by externals – externals from outside the Earth or externals from other areas of the Earth -- externals who were extant in 4000 B.C.

Some of the paintings intrigue; others are prosaic, mundane actually, depicting hunting and tribal rituals.

One painting, noted below, is the only painting that is realistic, in the modern sense.

The rest are either symbolic representations or presentations of what the artists actually saw, and provided for posterity, as if the artist knew how important and/or significant what they had seen was.

Look at these images and tell us what you see.

  • People see what they want to see and they project a lot. Some of the possible ET/ancient depictions are more compelling than others, especially when taken in with the concurrent myth tales. Some of it, I think, does rise to the level of evidence. It's not unreasonable to think that if ET visits are happening now, they were happening then and vice versa.

  • Also Frank....

    The paintings may very well be an artistically rendered history of the Neolithic tribe, by various artists, denoting nothing but everyday life, with nothing extraordinary, except the imaginative depictions.

    As artistic constructs, the paintings are absolutely magnificent, comparable to anything done by human hand since.

  • Imagine what people (or cyborgs, or whatever...) will make of a Picasso thousands of years from now.

  • I agree with what you say on visitations,and there is a lot of people worldwide who have seen U.F.O's,they cant all be fakes and made up stories,my wife and I think that we saw one about 30 yrs ago over the North Sea,it certainly was not an earth type aircraft.cheers
