Cave Art or an Ancient Astronaut presentation of UFOs (flying saucers) for your amusement?
(I'll go into the hypothesis more upcoming, but for now let me say it's wanting in my mind.)
David also listed various theories [Page 117 ff.], from others, for the paintings, which I'll touch on also upcoming:
The shamanistic theory (already noted here in my posting, a weeks ago, about Jean Clottes book What is Paleolitic Art and R, Dale Guthrie's The Nature of Paleolithic Art)
The magical and mythological theories of Abbé Breuil and Leroi-Gourhan.
The cosmogenic theory of Chantal Jègues-Wolkiewicz
And the extraterrestrial theory, which I took to the internet where I found this elaborate effort.
Whoever put together this site did so with élan and a belief, it seems, in the Ancient Astronaut theories of UFO sightings.
I discount the view, as you know, because advanced alien civilizations would be remiss in spending so much time surveying this lonely, backwater planet, but some of you might find the panoply of images provided by the web-site creator fascinating.
The cave art topic is another matter, unconnected to AA ramblings, but relevant to what mankind perceives and notes, artistically and otherwise, UFOs part of that madness....er, perception.
