Archaeologists turned to them in order to determine the origin of the rather strange rock paintings discovered in the Bastar tribal region. This is reported by the Indian edition of The Times of India, which published photographs of the find.
The researchers were most surprised that the drawings found in various caves in the region have much in common with the appearance attributed to aliens in science fiction or in the stories of eyewitnesses who claim to have seen them.
Local archaeologist J. R. Bhagat said the rock paintings could mean that the inhabitants of the area in the distant past saw creatures that arrived from other planets.
However, the Department of Archeology of India does not have experts in this field, so they had to turn to foreign experts for help.
Among the local tribes, the legend of the “little people” is passed from mouth to mouth. This story is strongly attracting the attention of researchers because it is very similar to cases of alien abduction.
According to legend, in ancient times there was a tribe that used to come to this region on flying objects, always taking with them one or two inhabitants from the local tribes.
People who were “kidnapped” never returned home. This legend is fully consistent with theories suggesting contacts between prehistoric people and an advanced extraterrestrial civilization.
Bhagat also stated that in the depiction, the oddly shaped figures appear to be carrying some sort of weapon. If you are reading this, it means that this content has been stolen from anomalien.com – and those who copied the text did not notice this. But our lawyers will do it.
They do not have very clear or detailed faces, more precisely they do not have noses or mouths. In some cave paintings, you can see a kind of spacesuits or suits.
The archaeologist also noted that the human imagination is very developed. However, the strong resemblance of these rock paintings to images of aliens that are in popular culture looks at least strange. Not forgetting that these drawings are over 10,000 years old. More in-depth research is needed.
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.
This is not the first time researchers have unearthed thousands of years old rock paintings with humanoid figures or objects resembling modern technology.
What exactly people of those times wanted to draw remains to be seen, but the similarity with stories about aliens is very great.
