A local archeologist from the state department of Chhattisgarh in India is seeking the help of NASA and the Indian Space Research Organization or ISRO to identify what he believes to be ancient paintings of UFOs and aliens. The rock paintings are about 10,000 years old.
In an interview by the Times of India, archaeologist, JR Bhagat says, “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.”
The state of Chhattisgarh is renowned for its ancient rock paintings, mostly of humans and animals in everyday scenes. However, some archeologists are seeing ancient rock paintings that may depict something entirely extraterrestrial. It’s not uncommon for ancient rock paintings in Chhattisgarh to feature strange beings. Some paintings feature mythical creatures including mermaids.
According to Bhagat, the aliens and UFOs depicted in these ancient paintings bear a striking resemblance to those seen in movies, but he says the resemblance are likely to be just coincidence.
He shares that, “the fan-like antenna and three legs of vehicle’s stand clearly show a similarity to UFO type craft. He adds that, “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. Specially, the nose and mouth are missing. In few pictures, they are even shown wearing space suits.”
Bhagat does admit that maybe the ancient drawings could be just a figment of imagination of prehistoric men. He says locals were worshiping some of the paintings.
The “Rohelo people” are also telling local legends about the strange and entities that came from the sky. Rohelo translates to “small sized ones.” According to the Rohelo people, the flying objects came from the sky, took several people and they never came back.
Bhagat says that the investigation on the ancient rock paintings is ongoing and he is seeking the help of other archeologists to determine the meaning behind these ancient works of art.
