Adamski's Great Hoax or Something More?

Copyright 2012, InterAmerica, Inc.

This a Wandjina depiction found by Sir George Grey in Western Australia in 1837:


This is the shoe print allegedly left by George Adamski's Venusian visitor, Orthon, in a Colorado desert in November 1952:


Note the virtually identical symbols in the Wandjina headdress and those in the heel portion of the shoe imprint left by Admanski's Orthon:


Was George Adamski familiar with Wandjina art, particularly the Grey find, and incorporated the symbols in the supposed Orthon shoe print?

If so, the hoaxing element is brilliant. If not, why the similarity? Coincidence would be a stretch, would it not be?

Is there some reality at work here, something far beyond hoaxing?

Or was Adamski such a skilled hoaxer that he put a few obscure things together -- things so arcane that only the most astute would find the connection. And to what end?

  • "virtually identical"??? I think you're drawing a very long bow, personally.

  • DDU,

    Take a very close look at the symbols....close look, not a knee jerk look.

  • I'm with Dave Down Under . . . saying these symbols are "virtually identical" is a very long stretch indeed. Yes, they are based on similar line strokes, but there's nothing especially unique about using that line stroke for creating a design or a doodle.

  • Come on PG...

    I don't know what kind of computer you have or monitor but check out the symbols forensically before being dismisssive.

    You and DDU would not be good assistants for Sherlock Holmes or Columbo or, more recently, The Mentalist.

  • My monitor is fine - there are NO matching symbols. A few similar line strokes don't count. You're seeing what you want to see.

  • I'll third that motion: not virtually identical. Chiding purrlgurrl with the word "forensically" sounds loony too.

  • Terry et al. -- see the new post above for a challenge to your myopic views.

  • I honestly don't see any matching symbols either. There are some marks but nothing beyond that.
