Is NASA set out to help India archaeologists to investigate 10,000-year-old paintings of what appears to be UFOs and beings wearing space suits? According to the Daily Star, the answer is yes.
All around the world, prehistoric cultures tried conveying a message through ancient rock art.
No matter where we look, whether its Northern, central, and South America, to Europe, Asia, and Africa, people who lived on Earth thousands of years ago created art, depicting what they had witnessed during their lifetime.
Some of these ancient rock carvings depict ordinary scenes of daily life like hunting while other illustrations challenge our very understanding of human history.
If we travel to India, for example, we will find a number of curious cave paintings, where some of the images appear to depict ‘figures’ that carry some sort of weapons and are dressed in what many consider are ‘space suits’.
A group of Indian archaeologists has approached NASA and the Indian Space Research Agency to help them decipher some prehistoric paintings found in 2014 in the Charama caves in the central state of Chhattisgarh. Many of these 10,000-year-old petroglyphs represent figures similar to extraterrestrials and UFOs as seen in modern-day science fiction movies.
Archaeologist JR Bhagat was perplexed by the images, reports Daily Star.
“The findings suggest that prehistoric humans could have seen or imagined beings from other planets, something that continues to arouse the curiosity of people and researchers today,” said the archaeologists according to the Daily Star.
JR Bhagat explains that in the city of Charma, there aren’t experts in the field who could help solve the mystery behind the curious depictions, and what ancient mankind wanted to say.
The researcher explained that some parts of the drawings are difficult to interpret and that some of the characters are represented by objects that look like weapons.
“The paintings are done in natural colors that have hardly faded despite the years. The strangely carved figures are seen holding weapon-like objects and do not have clear features. Especially, the nose and mouth are missing. In few pictures, they are even shown wearing space suits. We can’t refute the possibility of imagination by prehistoric men but humans usually fancy such things,” said Bhagat.
The video was uploaded to YouTube channel The Lost History Channel in February of 2018 has already received more than 7,000 views.
One comment read: “Evidence is everywhere, we need opened eyes, that’s all.”
And another claimed: “We don’t need to find aliens, they are already here all around us.”
India isn’t the only place where such rock art is found.
If we take a look at other ancient sites around the globe, we will notice how thousands of years ago, ancient people around the globe created a number of petroglyphs and cave paintings. Why ancient man depicted strange beings with 5 or 6 fingers, helmets, sandals, and what appear to be space suits is a mystery no one has been able to answer.
In Australia for example, ancient mankind created hundreds of mysterious cave paintings which are known today as the Wandjina Cave Paintings. This set of curious rock art depicts could be well over 100,000 years old, and shows mysterious beings which massive eyes, large heads, and strange construction.
Some authors suggest that the Wandjina Cave Paintings are some of the earliest examples of alien contact.
