For hundreds of years, UFOs have been cropping up in ancient art, baffling us all as to why they are there…


Crucifixion of Christ – 1350

Cruxifiction final

In the monastery Visoki Decani in Decan Kosovo, there’s a painting of Christ’s Crucifixion with a difference. In the top left and right hand corners of the painting there are two stars. Perfectly normal you might think, but on closer inspection they’re being piloted by people. UFOs? Only the unknown artist of this painting can tell us why…


Annunciation with St Emidius – 1430


Painted by Carlo Crivelli and currently on display in the National Gallery in London, it depicts a beam of light from a strange object in the sky striking a woman praying in a shop. The peacocks on there don’t seem to be bothered by it though…


Disputa of the Eucharist –1600


The painter Ventura Salimbeni’s fresco in the church of St Peter in Montalcino, Italy, is an odd one. At the top of the painting, it shows the Holy Trinity (Father, Son and Dove) holding onto the antenna of what seems to be an early Russian Sputnik satellite. Time travel perhaps? Ooohh, those Russians…


Svetitskhoveli Crucifixion fresco – 16th century


The Mtskheta Cathedral in Georgia contains another crucifixion image which seems to show two UFOs flying through the sky either side of Jesus on the cross. Once again, another unknown artist baffles us…


The Madonna with Saint Giovannino – 15th century

The madonna with finalPerhaps the most famous of all is Domenico Ghirlandaio’s painting. Currently on show at the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, Italy, it shows Mary praying whilst in the background a man with his dog on a hill are looking up at a UFO in the sky. And this one definitely looks like a UFO! Good job Mulder and Scully are coming back, maybe they can shed some light on these!
