Chhattisgarh state department of archeology is reaching out to NASA and Isro for help with a 10,000 year old painting they believe depicts aliens and UFOS, The Times of India reports. “These paintings have depicted aliens like those shown in Hollywood and Bollywood flicks.”
“The findings suggest that humans in prehistoric times may have seen or imagined beings from other planets which still create curiosity among people and researchers. Extensive research is needed for further findings. Chhattisgarh presently doesn’t have any such expert who could give clarity on the subject,” Bhagat told TOI.
There are several beliefs among locals in these villages. While few worship the paintings, others narrate stories they have heard from ancestors about “rohela people” — the small sized ones — who used to land from sky in a round shaped flying object and take away one or two persons of village who never returned.
“The paintings are done in natural colours that have hardly faded despite the years. The strangely carved figures are seen holding weapon-like objects and do not have clear features. Specially, the nose and mouth are missing. In few pictures, they are even shown wearing space suits. We can’t refute possibility of imagination by prehistoric men but humans usually fancy such things,” the archaeologist said.
Browsing over the image gallery over at TOI, it’s easy to see why the paintings are so alarming. They come uncannily close to modern depictions of UFOs and the big-headed, small bodied greys.
Take a look and decide for yourself.
