Ancient UFO Visitations?

Copyright 2013, InterAmerica, Inc.

In Peter Kolosimo’s extravagantly illustrated and documented book, Spaceships in Prehistory [University Books, Inc., Secaucus, NJ, 1976] are some drawings gathered by Aimé Michel from various caves in the Franco-Iberian (France/Spain) region of Europe.

These drawings show, as far as they can be interpreted, UFOs and/or alien beings, from our current perspective, and within the context of modern UFO lore.

Mr. Kolosimo also provides identification of the drawings, their locales and dates:

Kolosimo notes the “Rouffignac manikin” at the bottom of the second page of drawings [S-9]: a modern-looking humorous sketch of a man, but from about 13,000 years ago.

Mr. Kolosimo is not quick to attribute the drawings to extraterrestrial visitations, although Aimé Michel surely did, as does the Ancient Astronaut theorists. And such an interpretation is not irrational.

Professor André Leroi-Gourhan, however, who made the drawings, and is considered, Kolosimo writes, as the greatest living (at the time) authority on Western prehistoric art, sees men in beast masks and the drawings as imaginative renderings of prosaic things which were part of the cave-drawers' existence.

But are the drawings prosaic renderings? Is it not possible that what was drawn is what was actually seen – strange objects in the sky, and strange people debarking from them?

What’s your take?


Cave Art: It's by women artists!

New study believes cave art was done, mostly, by women.
